I have occasional trouble downloading, but frankly have been grabbing too much stuff for my hard drive. "Too much" because I usually go back to the web version for the search function anyway.

One peeve: Google doesn't seem to have figured out how to deal with multivolume books or series. So I can find one volume of Goss's biography of Revere, but not the other. Or all the Boston town records or Massachusetts Historical Society Volumes are filed under the same title.

Still, I'm getting a LOT more than I pay for.

Would anyone be able to tell me in which book, or in what year Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr. referred to Beacon Street as "the sunny street that holds the sifted few"?

I couldn't seem to find it in "The Autocrat of the Breakfast Table."

Thank you for your help.
