to treat with the General Court, if there be reason. Woburn, as we have seen, always contended most stoutly, but ineffectually, against paying for the support of the bridge, because, as she maintained, her people did not use it. They sometimes went to Boston through Charlestown (now Somerville). So troublesome grew this litigation, that Woburn paid to Medford a certain sum to be released from all further liabilities. The next movement for this important passway, worthy of record, was in 1789, when it was proposed to widen the bridge and pave the market-place. The plan devised for paying the expenses was a common one in that day; it was by a lottery; and, May 11, the town petitioned the General Court to grant them a lottery for these purposes. Our fathers did not think that such a lottery was doing evil that good may come. The petition was not granted. April 2, 1804: On this day, the Committee, chosen at a previous meeting to inquire into the necessity and expediency of buil

they were commanded only by the Major-General. This right, or assumption, often caused trouble on great muster-days; and once, when the Brigadier-General ordered the Medford Light Infantry to take the left, the Captain marched his company off the field, and returned to Medford without being reviewed. They maintained their cause, and never yielded their priority. The Weston Infantry was organized under the same law, but always gave precedence to the Medford on account of its greater age. 1789: When General Washington made his visit at Cambridge, he was attracted by the superior appearance of the Medford company on parade, and took great pains to ask General Brooks what corps it was. He passed a high compliment on it. There were many companies organized in the Commonwealth under the law; some artillery, some cavalry, but generally infantry. On general review-days, the Major-General and his staff would ride and stop in front of a brigade, and there go through with their examinat

1786.--For the first time, Medford granted liberty of building horse-sheds behind the meeting-house. Rev. Mr. Osgood boarded many years in the family of Deacon Richard Hall, and a very close intimacy blessed both parties afterwards. On a Sunday, Mrs. Hall was taken ill in church, and her husband went out with her. After some time, the deacon returned. As soon as he had shut the door, Mr. Osgood stopped in his sermon, and said, Mr. Hall, how is aunt now? She is better, was the reply. 1789.--Thomas Brooks, Esq., acquired great popularity as one of the marrying justices. One day, while riding on horseback to Woburn, he discovered a party of six young persons--three male, and three female — riding on horseback towards him. He guessed their errand; and they guessed that the cocked hat, bush-wig, and silver buckles approaching them must belong to the squire. Both parties stopped. The bridegroom announced his wishes, and the squire replied thus: My young friends, we are here in t
ear. He published the Salem Gazette again, in 1781; and, in 1785, the Massachusetts Gazette. In 1789, he opened a book-store in Boston, which he sold to Lincoln and Edmands in 1805, to whom Gould anom he had three sons; 2d, Margaret Cotton, in 1787,--issue, one daughter; and, 3d, Sarah Simpson, 1789,--issue, one son and three daughters.  2-3John Howe was born in Boston in 1784; and moved to Med1823.  6Daniel, m.
