Carter, Lawrence, the first white child born in the city of Lawrence, was born on Oct. 25, 1855, and the comments of the Herald of Freedom of Jan. 20, 1855,[sic] are interesting a half century later. The editorial said: "The first birth in this city was on the 25th of October last. The Lawrence Association donated the boy a first class city lot, and named him Lawrence Carter after the city and his parents. We learn that the little fellow is quite healthy, and is growing finely. May he live to see our beautiful city ranking with the first in the Union.

We may be allowed to say, in this connection, that the first white child born in Chicago is now but twenty-two years old, while the city boasts a population of near 80,000. May not a destiny equally prosperous await our own Lawrence?"
