to find the spot whence it started on its search? If the new mode I have adopted should prove inconvenient to readers, they must so declare against it that no writer will follow the example. I have received great help front the Massachusetts Colony Records; and Dr. N. B. Shurtleff's beautiful edition of them is a noble monument to a faithful student and public benefactor. I have also gathered much from the Historical Collections of the Massachusetts Historical Society,--from Winthrop, Hutchinson, Wood, and other early writers; and especially from the registries of Deeds and Probate. Mr. Frothingham's History of Charlestown is invaluable. I have obtained less information from old manuscripts in Medford than I expected. Many such important papers, long since collected here, have been irrecoverably scattered. I have received aid from Caleb Swan, Esq., of New York; from Mr. Joseph P. Hall, the accurate town-clerk; from Rev. Samuel Sewall, Mr. W. B. Shedd, and several other friends
homas Dudley. The five undertakers were Governor Winthrop, Deputy Governor Dudley, Sir Richard Saltonstall, Isaac Johnson, Esq., and Mr. Revil. The settlement of the patent in New England meant the establishment of the government here. Hutchinson says: It is evident from the charter, that the original design of it was to constitute a corporation in England, like to that of the East India Company, with powers to settle plantations within the limits of the territory, under such forms of gin our patent, we pray you endeavor. to purchase their title, that we may avoid the least scruple of intrusion.

It was the tract commonly called or known by the name of the Messachusiack, lying upon the north-east side of the bay, called or known by the name of the Messachusett. It extended ten English miles towards the north-east, and thirty English miles unto the main land, through all the breadth aforesaid. Hutchinson says that this grant, being loose and uncertain, was never used. March 19, 1628: The Council of Plymouth, under their common seal, by a deed indented, granted and sold to Sir Henry Roswell and five others all that part of New England, in America, which lies and extends between a great river there, commonly called Monomack (Merrimack), and a certain other river there, called Charles; being in the bottom of a certain bay there, commonly called Massachusetts. These are the first grants,

His example was so attractive and so uniform that he moulded the manners of the town. It was in this school that his pupil, John Brooks, caught the last finish of dignity and grace for which he was signalized. Aug. 30, 1770, he received from the king the commission of justice of the peace, signed by Governor Hutchinson. Dr. Tufts had the entire practice of Medford, and was frequently called into the neighboring towns. When the question of Independence came up, he took side for it with warmth, and devoted himself to the wounded soldiers, who were brought here after the battle of Bunker Hill.
