The vote of the town was generally thus, as in March 1, 1824: Voted that the selectmen be appointed a committee to dispose of the privilege of taking shad and alewives within the limits of said town the ensuing season. In 1855, Joseph L. Wheeler bought the upper reach, from Marble Brook to the Pond, for $27.50 per annum; and James Rogers bought the lower reach, from Marble Brook to the eastern border of the town, for $122.50 per annum. The annual sales have lately been less than $200. The shad and alewives were abundant till 1815 or 1820, when they began gradually to withhold their visits. A writer says, that, about the year 1800, it was common to take fifteen hundred shad annually at Little River (near Fresh Pond); but that, in 1852, there was not one taken; and that, proportionally, a similar statement might be mad

It was in the thick darkness that immediately precedes day, that our company reached the camp which it left before the battle, and where yet was its necessary baggage and some commissary and quartermaster's stores. It needed the light of dawn to exhibit the weary, sober troops; Private M. V. Cushing was wounded, Rogers and one other man were missing. The horses were clamorous for fodder. Much needed refreshment and a brief rest for man and beast were hardly enjoyed, when our command and all the troops in that vicinity were again in motion, this time toward the southeast.
