ded northeast by Three-Pole Lane (now Shawmut and Cross Streets), and thus makes the Strawberry Hill of the olden time to be the Prospect Hill of our time. Richard Miller, 1637 or earlier. His dwelling house and eight acres of land were in Gibbons-field, near Gibbons River, which years later became Miller's River, but is now, happily, no more. Richard Miller removed to Cambridge, and Joseph, one of his two sons, also settled there. James, the younger of the two, settled in Somerville, and of him and his descendants, more anon. Samuel Hall, 1637, had a dwelling house and four acres of land in the Highfield, probably on the Somerville side of the bn. Henry Harbour, or Harbard, 1657, had a house and ten acres of land in Gibbons-field, which he bought of William Kilcop. His first wife was the widow of Richard Miller, and, having no issue himself, left a large part of his property to her descendants. William Bullard, 1658, perhaps lived at the West End, as he married, w

They captured seven persons, and, among other things, seven muskets, a quantity of provisions, and three hundred gallons of oil. The following is a list of the prisoners, composing the keeper and guard of the boat: Alex. Ruak, Conrad Fritz, Thomas Segernin, Ed. Smith, Job Thompson, Charles Wise, Richard Miller. They are now lodged in jail here, having come into town in a decided state of inebriation. These light-boats are always moored very strongly, and we can therefore imagine how severe this storm must have been to have snapped the ponderous cable. There is really very little news in town beyond what I have already sent you by telegraph. The weather has been so bad that I have been unable to look around the city, or to visit any of the numerous camps in this vicinity. Besides,
