ath of Austen Bratcher; and so to be manslaughter. Palmer was bound over to be tried at Boston for this death; and, on the 9th of November, the jury bring in a verdict of Not guilty. At a court held at Watertown, March 8, 1631, Ordered that Thomas Fox, servant of Mr. Cradock, shall be whipped for uttering malicious and scandalous speeches, whereby he sought to traduce the court, as if they had taken some bribe in the business concerning Walter Palmer. This Thomas Fox was fined four times, aThomas Fox was fined four times, and seems to have been possessed by the very demon of mischief. He left the plantation without his benediction. June 14, 1631: At this court, one Philip Radcliff, a servant of Mr. Cradock, being convict, ore tenus, of most foul, scandalous invectives against our churches and government, was censured to be whipped, lose his ears, and be banished the plantation,--which was presently executed.

From these we turned to the humbler tomb of Thomas Longhorn, the town drummer, who died in 1685, aged about 68 years, or of Thomas Fox, whose death was in 1693, and who had a quarter of a century before been ordered by the selectmen to look to the youth in time of public worship, & to inform against such as he find disorderly ; or, perhaps with vague curiosity to that of Jane, a negro servant to Andrew Boardman, who died in 1741, when Massachusetts still held slaves. These larger tombs, by reason of their horizontal position, afforded excellent seats for schoolboys, intent perhaps on exploring the results of their wal

Afterwards, when the people were able to arrange things as they wished, the pulpit was a high, elaborate structure, with a sounding board. The ruling elders sat below the pulpit, and the deacons a little lower still, facing the congregation. The boys had a place by themselves in the gallery, with a tithing man with a long pole to keep them in order. In 1668 Thomas Fox was ordered to look to the youth in time of public worship. The meeting house which was built here in 1632 had a bell, but there is a town record in 1646 of fifty shillings paid unto Thomas Langhorne for his service to the town in beating the drum these two years past. Perhaps the sound of the bell did not reach far enough, and the drummer was sent through the settlement to summon the people. The congregation came together as early as nine o'clock on Sunday morning, and about two in t
