y in the Redeemer's everlasting kingdom. The missing portion of this discourse is probably the sermon of Cooke to the Minute Company, presented in Smith's Address, 1864, pp. 7-11. This discourse was delivered under excitement which soon became a reality on a day never to be forgotten in the annals of the Precinct, and ever memns, particularly within the limits of this Precinct. The Rev. Samuel Abbot Smith, in his work entitled West Cambridge on the Nineteenth of April, 1775 (Boston, 1864), pp. 66, gives an extended account of the part the place took in the battle, and preserves many traditions of the doings of the inhabitants.

As the Second Precinct of Cambridge, we hold an honorable place in history; who would alienate that inheritance? Other names may be more euphonious, but as soon should the man give up his surname, consecrated by the good acts, and glorified by the patriotism of pious and brave ancestors, as we give up that good old name of Cambridge
