bout twice the size of Jamaica Pond or larger, and has a small wooded island in the center. On the island was a band of musicians which began to play as soon as we landed. It seemed a scene of enchantment; Cousin Kate who was by my side seemed too much affected to speak. We had many wits in the party and there was no lack of bon mots. The gentlemen played off upon each other, to our amusement. When spirits flagged, we had the resource of music. Five instruments, and vocal music from Mrs Quincy, Mr Callender and occasionally Mr Webster and young May, Afterward the Rev. Samuel J.

Editorial note. It is very unlikely that the incidents of any other picnic party or summer outing in Medford are as well preserved as those of the above relation. The daughter of the Mrs. Quincy therein alluded to kept a diary, in which many of the facts related are noted, with others of equal interest. Both letter and diary formed the basis of an interesting communication to the Colonial Society of Massachusetts in 1907, which is illustrated by a view of the Lake of the Woods with its wooded island. It was the privilege of the editor to identify the various localities therein named, and assist that writer, H. H. Edes, Esq., at that time. Very recently we have found (what neither knew at that former time) the story of the lily-picking episode as told by Mr. May himself in his autobiography.
