ns of Massachusetts, but as Americans united against the common enemy. Address by John F. Ayer. John F. Ayer's address was as follows:— The tower is completed, outwardly, at all events. Still there remains to be placed in position the historical tablet. The committee has placed this in the hands of the Somerville Historical Society to formulate. That very important and agreeable duty the Historical Society will cheerfully and conscientiously perform. In concise and dignified English, it will tell the story, that all, young and old, may readily comprehend the reason of its erection, and be impressed with the lesson the monument itself conveys. I fear we here do not the half appreciate the historic value of our surroundings—do not half comprehend or value the riches, historically speaking, of our city, even, to say nothing of the wealth of such material in the region included in the original Plymouth and Massachusetts Bay colonies.
