this tomb rests the remains of Mr. John Hughes, of Norwich in Connecticut. He died in his country's cause, July ye 25th, A. D. 1775, in ye 21st year of his age. Reader, Death is a debt to nature due; As i have paid it, so must you. Another has a similar inscription to John Stearns, died August 22, 1775, aged 23 years. The mound, on the Garden Street side, incloses tombs of once prominent families, that of Deacon Gideon Frost, Deacon Josiah Moore, Major Jonas Wyeth, and probably of Israel Porter, of the Blue Anchor Hostelry. Opposite, in the centre of the grounds, is the most prominent tomb, with this inscription, and many more lines of obituary:— In this tomb are deposited the remains of Thomas Lee, Esquire, a native of Great Britain, but for many years a citizen of America. death released him from his sufferings May 26th, 1797, in the 60th year of his age. Near the front boundary is a brick monument, covered with a massive stone block, on which is cut:— Here lyeth interr

It has a somewhat modern air, in spite of its more than modern dignity of expression. Let us read:— All are rayment annually of one dollar. This vote made it desirable that an authentic list of the members should be on record, and accordingly such a list was placed on the books. It is as follows: Abiel Holmes, Henry Ware, Levi Farwell, Levi Hedge, Israel Porter, E. W. Metcalf, James Munroe, A. Biglow, Sidney Willard, William Hilliard, William Brown, T. L. Jennison, Asahel Stearns, W. J. Whipple,* Abel Willard,* James Brown, Charles Folsom, Joseph Story, Josiah Quincy, William Wells, Stephen Higginso
sold the estate, Jan. 26, 1749, to Ebenezer Bradish; Mr. Bradish died in 1785, and his son sold it, Feb. 29, 1796, to Israel Porter, who is well remembered by many now living, and who died May 30, 1837, aged 99, according to the town record.

And it is worthy of note, that, according to the Treasurer's account current, Israel Porter paid for the use of the market house on those two days and the intervening night, the sum of twenty dollars, while thext meeting. The matter seems then to have rested until June 5, 1830, when it was enacted by the General Court, that Israel Porter, Stephen Higginson, Asahel Stearns, Joseph Holmes, and Francis Dana, with their associates, be and they are hereby au
