There was, however, no formal provision for girls in such schools until October 19, 1789, when the town voted that children of both sexes should be taught in the reading and writing schools of their newly reorganized system. Even then and for forty years thereafter Boston girls were excluded from these schools from October to April; and when finally, in 1828, they were graciously permitted to attend school, like the boys, all the year round, the policy of separating the sexes was begun,—a policy that is in vogue to-day in many grammar schools in the older sections of the city as well as in the four central high schools. Doubtless there were girls as well as boys in the early dame schools. These were private schools that received children of the kindergarten age, although they were far from being conducted in the kindergarten spirit. In the o

Up to the year 1842 our citizens of that faith were obliged to attend either the cathedral on Franklin Street in Boston, erected in 1803, or the church in Charlestown, which followed it in 1828.

The ten years from the time of fitting up these rooms for permanent use to the year 1828 afforded opportunity for steady growth. To quote the words of Dr. Paige, our venerable historian, to whom every gleaner in these fields must acknowledge his great indebtedness, Its meetings were well attended, its treasury well supplied, and its ol lot, and fitted up on it the old Baptist vestry, to be used by the town as a schoolhouse, in exchange for a lease of the lodge-rooms. The anti-Masonic excitement, which began in New York State, reached Cambridge in full force about the year 1828. Looking back on those days, it is difficult to understand the extent of the disturbance, or to comprehend the causes which led to such bitter and unreasoning opposition. In Massachusetts, as elsewhere, the persecution was carried into all the r

The manufacture of soap was admarket, the soap being sold principally for export to the West Indies and South America.
