Medford incidents. (Advertisement in N. E. Chronicle, September 21-28, 1775.) Taken up in Medford some time after the Battle of Lexington, a basket of crockery ware which the owner may have again by enquiring of Mr. Samuel Tufts of Medford. The above ad noted by B. F. Fenton. The late Rebecca Reed gave me the tradition, that when the people fled from Charlestown, June 17, 1775, as the flames swept away their homes, many women and children were kept over night in the Garrison House. Others hurried along over the Andover turnpike [Forest street]. Eliza M. Gill.
