Medford medicine The newspapers of a century ago contain relatively as many advertisements of wonderful medicines as those of today. Cyrus Holbrook, Druggist, At the Sign of St. Luke's Head, No. 56 Hanover Street, in the Independent Chronicle, Boston, Thursday, June 22, 1815, gives the following testimonial, among others, concerning the efficacy of Dr. Rolfe's Botanical drops: Mr. Seth Bradford, of Medford, Shipwright, was 12 years afflicted with a fever sore leg, after every assistance had failed, was cured by these drops, and at his particular request the same is made known for the benefit of the public. The Columbian Centinel, Boston, Wednesday morning, July 12, 1826, advertising the merits of Dr. Crawford's pills, says they may be obtained of the proprietor, and by his appointment, among others of N. Mead, Medford, Mass. Eliza M. Gill.

Communicated by Miss Eliza M. Gill.

Query, Where was Oak's road?
ferred to is on High street (present No. 57) now occupied by Dr. Charles A. Draper. Changes materially altering the grounds on the north and west have been made, especially since the laying out of Governors avenue. Thirty-two steps still remain in good position. The ell is of much later construction than the main house, and probably was not there in Solomon Manning's time. In early days the southeast room was the living room, the northeast one was the kitchen; the lower west rooms were only used on state occasions, and the present south entrance only occasionally. Within a few years changes in the grade of the sidewalk made it necessary to take away some of the steps and carry back the front entrance into the hall as it now is. Formerly there was a plot of land in front, enclosed by a fence. Dudley Hall was born in Medford October 14, 1780, and died here November 3, 1868. Solomon Manning named one of his sons for his employer.— Eliza M. Gill. Medford, April 2, 1902
ip Enterprise came in on Sunday from Canton. Mr. William Hall of Medford was passenger in her. Just off the mouth of the harbor, she was boarded by a British Frigate, who did not know that War was declared, and let her come in. Soon after, they met the U. S. Frigate President, going out after the Englishman, and William Hall (son of Col. Fitch Hall) immediately left the Enterprise, went on board the President, and offered his services to Commodore Rodgers, and he is now on board this Frigate who is in pursuit of the Belvidere, and we are hourly expecting her to be brought in. After so long a voyage as Mr. Hall has just been, the readiness with which he again entered the service, does credit to his patriotism, and reflects great honor upon himself. C. S. According to the genealogies in History of Medford, William Hall, born March 21, 1790, died about 1820, unmarried, was a cousin of Dudley Hall, referred to by Mr. Manning and also by Miss Gill in a preceding article of this issue.
