In 1898 Mr. Bartlett was appointed an associate justice of the Ilaverhill Police Court to succeed Ira A. Abbott, who was made standing justice in place of Judge Henry Carter, deceased. Mr. Bartlett was one of the oldest members of the Pentucket Club, a member of the Monday Evening Club, and a communicant of the North Congregational church of Haverhill.

Mr. Bartlett was married May 19, 1886, to Grace Monroe, daughter of Luther Johnson, a prominent citizen of Haverhill, and cashier of what is now the First National Bank until his accidental death by drowning on Christmas day in 1864. Mrs. Bartlett was a woman of ready comprehension, clear insight, critical judgment, and excellent memory--a scholar of remarkable ability to whom life brought the fullest pleasure, and nature, music, art, and literature in their highest forms, gave deep enjoyment. She died January 13, 1894, leaving no children.
