because the Charlestown Path was outside of the pallysadoes and had no inhabitants. A plan of Cambridge about 1750 shows some extension of the settlement, and here we find The way to Charlestown set down, with the Coledge on the south side of it and a single house on the north side marked Mr. Foxcroft's house. Francis Foxcroft belonged to an old English family whose seat was at Leeds, in Yorkshire, near Kirkstall Abbey, whose magnificent ruins many Americans have visited. His father, Daniel, was mayor of Leeds in 1665. The son came to Boston in 1679. He, therefore, cannot be reckoned among the first settlers, but his education, abilities and wealth seem to have made him an important character from the first. In 1682 he married Elizabeth, daughter of Deputy Governor Thomas Danforth, and so connected himself with a truly great name. Mr. Danforth during his long life (born in England 1622, died 1699) was Selectman of Cambridge twenty-seven years, Town Clerk twenty-four years,

y father at home. In 1803 I was put to learn French with Mr. Francis Sales, with whom I made very good progress, though his pronunciation was bad, as he came from the South of France, and both he and I had to correct it later. I also learnt a little Spanish with him,—but very little; though he knew it tolerably well, having lived some time in Spain with an uncle, who, like himself, was a refugee in the time of the Revolution. About the same time, Mr. Ezekiel Webster, an elder brother of Daniel, a graduate of Dartmouth College, kept a school in Short Street, near my father's house, which was in Essex Street; and my father, thinking Mr. Webster might know more Greek than he did, sent me to him at private hours, to read Homer's Iliad. It was a mistake. I very soon found out that Mr. Webster knew less Greek than my father, and could teach me nothing. But I did not tell of this. I read about half the Iliad with him, much amused by the original, and more with Pope, of which I read t
