of the New England people which lived within the limits of Cambridge received the idea—although faintly and imperfectly at first—of a municipal organism which should be responsible for the general welfare of the community. It was by no means a Cambridge idea, and the people appear to have adopted it with reluctance, and only after long debate. Boston had had a charter life of nearly a quarter of a century before the movement to imitate its example began in the neighboring towns. Of these Roxbury led the way, its charter having been granted by the legislature and accepted by its people five days before the corresponding action was taken in Cambridge. A year later, Charlestown illustrated the general tendency by likewise becoming a city. Before this charter agitation of 1846, there had been no new cities in Massachusetts since the incorporation of Salem and Lowell in 1836.

days before the corresponding action was taken in Cambridge. A year later, Charlestown illustrated the general tendency by likewise becoming a city. Before this charter agitation of 1846, there had been no new cities in Massachusetts since the incorporation of Salem and Lowell in 1836. But following the example of Boston's three little neighbors, New Bedford became a city in 1847, Worcester in 1848, and Lynn in 1850. Then came Newburyport in 1851, Springfield in 1852, Lawrence in 1853, Fall River in 1854, and so the list has lengthened, year by year. With the exception of the three early ventures of Boston, Salem, and Lowell, the era of Massachusetts municipalities may be said to have begun in 1846. The rapid increase in the population and property of Cambridge in the years immediately preceding the adoption of the charter was the main reason for the change in its form of government. From the national census of 1840 to the assessors' census of 1845 there had been an increase
