ld be very agreeable— Yours B Hall We are led to query whether the ten hogsheads of patent spirits, which according to the letter was Rum, that bears a high reputation in this Country, was the first exported to England. As every thing depends on the first start, Mr. Hall doubtless did his best to make a favorable impression on Johnny Bull and extend the trade. The elder Hall's letter was short and to the point.

It was once invaded by the British, when they marched from their landing place on the river bank to the old powder house and back again with their plunder, minus the Medford portion, however. A little later the presence of some British horsemen on the hill sent Revere through it, instead of on the direct route to Lexington. Next the New Hampshire troops crossed and re-crossed it to and from Bunker Hill. Two years later the Hessian prisoners here ended their long march from Saratoga and encamped on the upland corner of the farm. Then came the time and arts of peace. Forty years after the advertising (and we may not know how many tenants in those years) the Middlesex Canal was dug through its eastern border. Soon after, the Medford turnpike crossed the marsh beside the canal. Then after three decades came the railroad th
