Comments
 The Liversidge Institution of Industry was for boys only, and they had to be natives of England or New England. Located on River Street, about half-way between Lower Mills and Mattapan, it received and trained poor and negleected boys from seven to fourteen years old. The founder of this charity was born in England, but spent nearly the whole of his life in Dorcester.
