In 1644, these Mystic Indians voluntarily put themselves under the protection and jurisdiction of the English government at Boston. Eliot's first sermon to the Indians was preached in 164 Indian graduate, Caleb Cheeshahteaumuck, who received his degree in 1665 and died the next year. In the terrible crisis of King Philip's War some of the praying Indians found the ties of blood stronger than those of religion, and a fierce popular distrust was aroused against them. In the early spring of 1676, there was a feelingoon subsided, and after that year such dangers were removed to an ever receding frontier. The settlers of New England dreaded heresy far more than they dreaded Indians, and in 1646 a synod of delegates from the colonies of Massachusetts, Plymouth, Connecticut, and New Haven was assembled at Cambridge, in order to define their cr

bridge, the admired subject of frequent remark, the study of architects and artists and well known by its numerous pictures, succumbed to the commercialism of today. It might have been a valuable asset in an artistic survey of the once beautiful estate, the central object in a park that would have added beauty thereto, whose value need not be estimated in square feet of land and less by cubic feet of stone. In later years, during some excavation, an Indian burial place was found. The bones of the aborigines thus exhumed were given appropriate sepulture by Mr. Francis Brooks, and a unique monument erected with this inscription, To Sagamore John and those Mystic Indians whose bones lie here. In recent time this monument, with the vault beneath, has been placed near the bridge site by the present owners of the estate, where it is hoped it may ever remain. An account of the same may be found in the Medford Mercury, as also in a previous issue a detailed description of the bridge.

Conant while digging a cellar on the Brooks place recently came across the skeletons of several Indians. They were placed mostly in a sitting posture, after the old Indian mode of burial. Mr. Lucien Conant was the superintendent of the Brooks estate and lived in the farm house on High street, and near the granite arch, and the cellar referredand surmounted with a rough and irregular-shaped block of conglomerate. In the west face of the base is a dressed panel with the words, Site of Indian Burial Place. A similar panel in the east has the dedication, To Sagamore John and those Mystic Indians whose bones lie here. On the north and south (respectively) are the dates 1630 and 1884. Thus did Mr. Francis Brooks, as possessor of the soil wherein was this Indian necropolis, reverently and honorably reinter the remains of those of a
