On the fourteenth day of August, the Governor writes to Joseph F. Hitchcock, Warren,— It gives me great pleasure to acknowledge the receipt of your letter dated this day, which makes known to me the patriotic action of the citizens of Warren at the meeting held last evening, at which, you inform me, thirty persons volunteered to make up the quota of your town under the draft ordered by the President of the United States.

exington. Such a project had already been determined upon, and in view of these circumstances, the committee asked to be discharged from the subject matter, which was done. A petition for the West Cambridge Branch Road, signed by Timothy Wellington and others, was presented to the Legislature, and an order of notice was passed January 17, 1845. At a hearing of both petitions from the citizens of the respective towns, in March following, before the committee of the Legislature, Hon. G.
