like other visitors to Cambridge in those days, are likely to have been impressed with its tidy and comfortable appearance. In the tavern talk to which they listened, they may have heard that witchcraft, that torment of the Old World, had come to plague the New. For over in Charlestown a few years ago Margaret Jones had cured sick people without resort to bleeding or emetics, and when she was hanged for these diabolical practices, at the moment her soul quit the body there was a gale in Connecticut that blew down trees. Then there was a Cambridge woman by the name of Kendall, who picked up the child of Goodman Jennison, of Watertown, and kissed and fondled it, and a few hours afterward the child grew pale and died; wherefore, as was natural, the witch Kendall was hanged on Gallows Lot. Another topic for the Puritan ale-house would be the damnable heresy for which Mr. Henry Dunster, President of Harvard College, was censured by the magistrates and dismissed from office in 1655.
pt fowling-pieces without bayonets, and with only a limited supply of powder and bullets, they marched in silence down the road to Charlestown for Bunker Hill. Two sergeants carrying dark lanterns were a few paces in front, and the intrenching tools in carts brought up the rear. Few of the men were aware of the object of the expedition until they halted at Charlestown Neck. Here Major Brooks and General Putnam joined them, and the main body, together with a fatigue party of two hundred Connecticut troops, marched over to Bunker Hill, and about midnight began their work. This Common contained also the famous elm under which Washington took command of the Continental Army. On his arrival at Cambridge in 1775, he found upwards of nine thousand militia encamped here in tents, and occupying also the college buildings and Christ Church. On the morning of July 3, under escort of his staff and the officers of the army, Washington marched from what is now the old President's House in H
, a prominent citizen of Cambridge, a member of the Congress at Watertown with General Joseph Warren, is unknown. He was mortally wounded at Bunker Hill. The first official order of General Washington here, July 4, 1775, was for full military honors at his funeral that day. Near this locality is the grave of John Hughes, a young man who died and was buried among strangers. The inscription on the headstone reads: Beneath 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
o was driven from them; whereupon, they sought a new home across the sea, which they trusted he would share with them. They began to make their settlement at Mount Wollaston, and the Court ordered them to come to the New Town. In 1632 a meeting-house was built, and in 1633 Mr. Hooker and Rev. Samuel Stone were made the ministers of the new church. This was the eighth church in the Massachusetts Colony. But in 1636 the ministers and most of the church and congregation left New Town for Connecticut. Some families, eleven or more, remained here. Fortunately for them, another company of about sixty persons had come from England, having Thomas Shepard as their leader. On a mural tablet in the church which bears his name it is recorded, as it is in Shepard's autobiography, that Some went before, and writ to me of providing a place for a company of us, one of which was John Bridge. John Bridge was one of those who stayed behind. His statue now stands on the Cambridge Common. A par
k from all kinds of marble and granite. It has been found more profitable to do the principal cutting and heavy work at the quarries, though at the Cambridge works from twenty to thirty men are constantly employed to do the carving and finishing. Some of the finest monuments, headstones, tablets, and carved work have been made here, and erected in Mount Auburn and other prominent cemeteries in the United States. The works are located opposite Mount Auburn Cemetery entrance. The Connecticut steam-stone Co., incorporated April 3, 1893, with a paid — up capital of ten thousand dollars, is located on First Street, East Cambridge, and is a branch of the Connecticut Steam Brown-Stone Company of Portland, Conn., the largest stone-cutting and milling establishment in the country. E. Irving Bell, of Portland, is president; J. David Renton, treasurer; and George Everett, general manager. Their business is that of treating building-stone. Since their location in Cambridge they h
