of the college. The construction of the Craigie Bridge in 1809 largely contributed to this result also. Both of these bridges were originally private enterprises, their profits being dependent upon tolls. As the town increased, other bridges were built, partly on account of the growth of population, and partly for the purpose of bringing real estate into the market. Prison Point Bridge was constructed in 1815, under authority of an act passed in 1806. It was laid out as a county road in 1839. The bridge at the foot of River Street was completed in 1811, and was assumed by the town in 1832. The Western Avenue Bridge was built under authority of an act passed in 1824. A glance at the streets and avenues which were laid out as feeders to the Boston bridges will show the important part played by these corporations in the development of the town. Radiating from Main Street (now Massachusetts Avenue) and covering the territory from the Charles River to the eastern boundary, we ha

Quincy Street is called—was acquired in twelve parcels in the course of two centuries, that is, between 1638 and 1835. The delta on which Memorial Hall stands was bought in two parcels between 1786 and 1816, one of these parcels having been procured in one of the College Yard transactions. After these purchases were made, Cambridge Street and Broadway were laid out through them. The land north of Cambridge Street and south of Everett Street was bought in thirteen parcels between 1816 and 1839. Before many years had elapsed, considerable portions of this land were sold; and there have been seven re-purchases of parts of the parcels thus sold. In this region the President and Fellows once owned more than twice the area which they now own; but the sales made by the college were nevertheless judicious; for land within this region has been repeatedly bought back at prices less than those for which it was sold by the college with compound interest at five per cent. computed thereon.

Another famous Cambridge editor was Theophilus Parsons, Dane Professor of Law at Harvard, but also founder and editor of the United States Free Press, and for several years engaged in literary pursuits. William Lloyd Garrison, of The Liberator, lived in Cambridge, on the northwest corner of Broadway and Elm Street, from 1839 to 1843, and did some right good editorial work during that period. John Gorham Palfrey was one of the editors of the Boston Daily Whig, the precursor of the Free Soil press, about 1846, and was one of the editors of The Commonwealth. Robert Carter, who was also one of the early editors of The Commonwealth, had previously aided James Russell Lowell in editing The Pioneer, a short-lived magazine. And Lowell himself in 1848 was corresponding editor of the Anti-Slavery Standard, editorial cor
ing to the belief and usage of the English Church. Rev. East Apthorp, a Fellow of Jesus College, Cambridge, England, was proposed, and was appointed in 1759. In 1761 Christ Church was opened for service. In the time of the Revolution service in the church was interrupted, and the house was used for military purposes, though an occasional service was held. In 1790 the house was restored, and it has since been enlarged and adorned. The longest ministry was that of Rev. Nicholas Hoppin, from 1839 to 1874. He stands worthily in this long pastorate with his friends, Dr. Albro and Dr. Newell. The parish of St. Peter's Church was organized in 1842. Its first house of worship was on Prospect Street. In 1867 the new church on Massachusetts Avenue was opened. St. James's Parish, in North Cambridge, was organized in 1866. A mission of the Protestant Episcopal Church had been sustained in that part of the city for eighteen months, under the charge of the Rev. Andrew Croswell. He was fol

This establishment, so well known all over the United States, was originally started by the late Artemas Kennedy in 1839, when he came to Cambridgeport and began business in a brick building on Main Street near Brookline, where he remained for about six years. He then built a frame house with bakery adjoining, on the site now occupied by the apartment house, the Lowell, Nos. 434 to 440 Massachusetts Avenue. He continued to bake crackers in this bakery for a period of about ten years, the actual consumption of flour being about four barrels per day, which was kneaded, rolled, formed by hand, and the crackers wer
