He superintended the affairs of the Boston Gas-Light Company for sixteen years.

He served at another time of excitement, in the introduction of the Voluntary Fire Department, as an assistant engineer. He was a Director of one of the public institutions of the city, a Representative to the General Court, and President of the Massachusetts Charitable Mechanic Association. Of the latter, he was one of its early and prominent members; he was long associated in the management of its affairs, displaying great intelligence and persevering industry. He exhibited the same devotion to the interests of the Bunker-Hill-Monument Association, of which he was Director for thirty-four years, and, in 1840-1843, was a member of the Building Committee; in 1835, with Mr. Thorndike and Mr. Hammond,he made a long and laborious calculation of the cost of the work remaining to be done, on two different plans, by calculating the contents of each stone in every course to be laid, and estimating the cost thereof, for which service the Committee received a special vote of thanks on the part of the Corporation."
