When Florence Smalls smoldering body rose to the surface of the basement water, local folks immediately suspected her husband of the crime. Frederick Small was an outsider, a Boston man, who had moved to Ossipee Lake to semi-retire. There was a deep distrust of city fellas up there behind the Ossipees, in 1916 and perhaps this suspicion was warranted. But how could Frederick have been responsible for a murder and a fire that happened 7 hours after he had left for Boston on a business trip?

The sensational trial that followed was unlike any previously experienced in Carroll County. And although everybody from the Boston area to Portland, Maine, had an opinion, nobody anticipated the decision the jury would reach.The Manchester Leader and Evening Union newspaper wrote in anticipation of a verdict, If the state has proved its case, it has developed a new type of New Hampshire criminal. It has brought forth a cool, daring, mechanical and chemical genius, a man who scorned the ordinary forms of murder but brought to the mountains of this quiet village a science which would baffle Sherlock Holmes.

The jury of his peers will decide whether Frederick Small is that man or the normal individual who has been made a victim of circumstances and is being tried for a crime of which he had no knowledge.The unrest on the ill-fated property remained even in 1956, when Anna Foleys unsuspecting son and daughter-in-law felt the effects of the events of 1916 one August night while vacationing on the property.
