s. The commerce was continued with success; but Asia had greater attractions. In 1598 two and twenty ships 1598. sailed from Dutch harbors for the Indian seas, in part by the Cape of Good Hope, in part through the Straits of Magellan.

XV.} approved. But the zeal of merchants and of statesmen was concentred on the East, where jealousy of the Portuguese inclined the native princes and peoples to welcome the Dutch as allies and protectors. In March, 1602, by the prevailing influence of Olden 1602. Barneveldt, the advocate of Holland, the Dutch East India Company was chartered with the exclusive right to commerce beyond the Cape of Good Hope on the one side, and beyond the Straits of Magellan on the other. The States, unwilling to pledge themselves to the chances of war, purposely gran
Charles Cummings. June 7, 1817—February 28, 1907. Another member of our Historical Society, a beloved and honored citizen of Medford, has gone out from our midst, to join The innumerable caravan that moves To the pale realms of shade. Mr. Charles Cummings, was born in Hollis, N. H., June 7, 1817. He was the eighth of ten children of Thomas Cummings, who was of the eighth generation from Deacon Isaac Cummings, who, born about the year 1600, came to America on the ship Sarah Ann, somewhere about 1630, settling in Topsfield, Mass. The intervening links between this ancestor and his father, were John, John, Samuel, Samuel, Thomas, Thomas. His early instruction must have been obtained in the schools of his native town, for among his cherished possessions is an old paper covered writing book, bearing at the bottom of several of its pages, in very immature chirography, these words,—Hollis, January, 1828. At the age of fourteen, he became clerk in the store of Col. D. M. G. Mean

Then the Trust Company took up the work of completion. The schooner is 175 feet in keel, 204 feet over all, 38.2 feet in width, 19.6 feet in depth and has two decks. . . . First-class rooms, with the most modern conveniences, were built for the officers and crew. She will carry a crew of nine men, and has capacity of 1600 tons of coal, although she can be used for other trade. By the above it appears that the enterprise of building this vessel has been attended with adversity and probable loss to the originators, and that the ultimate cost was far in excess of the early estimate. During the construction the writer made a number of visits and was courteously treated, and learned much new to him that certainly increased the regard he had for the men who toiled in the shipyards of Medford in the days of yore
