HARVARD SQUARE COMMENTARY

February 26, 2007
Chuckle of the Week


In the late 19th century, a commission was created to determine the boundary line between the states of New Hampshire and Maine.

As a result, a Maine farmer found his property was now located in New Hampshire.

An enterprising local newspaper sent one of its reporters to interview those affected by the change.

When they interviewed the farmer, asking how he felt about the change, he replied, “I thank the God Almighty!  I never could have stood another of those Maine winters.”
