William Winthrop (search for this): chapter 37
1640, James Luxford, for his forgery, lying, and other foul offences, was censured to be bound to the whipping post till the lecture from the first bell, and after the lecture to have his ears cut off; and so he had liberty to depart out of our jurisdiction. Very probably he availed himself of the liberty granted, and with mutilated ears departed from the jurisdiction of those rulers who were a terror to, evil doers. I find no trace of him here afterwards. An unfaithful steward of Governor Winthrop, bearing the same name, perhaps the same person, fled to, Plymouth before 10 Oct. 1640, and was then in extreme poverty and distress. Coll. Mass. Hist. Soc., XXXVI. 169. More than a dozen suits were commenced against him in Plymouth, at the court holden in December, 1641. Plym. Col. Rec., VII. 24-27. His wife remained here, was a member of the Church, and a recipient of its bounty. Her name appears on the records as sister Albon, Albone, or Olbon. I conjecture that her name before

, and his death occasioned a general lamentation. For a more extended notice of his character, see Pres. Quincy's Hist. of the University. It would seem that his appearance was very dignified, and somewhat more haughty than would be tolerated in these days, since it has been discovered that all men are born free and equal. In the Library of the Mass. Hist. Society is preserved a letter from Nathaniel Cotton, a member of the Senior Class in College, to his father, Rev. Rowland Cotton of Sandwich, dated 6 Ap. 1717, in which it is said: Our two Deacons walk on each side of the President with their hats under their arms, when consulting, making very low obeisance to him when they take their leave of him. He not so much as touches his hat, or takes his hand out of his pocket, which is taken notice of; and indeed is ruler of the Town as well as College. Pres.

He was elected President of Harvard College 28 Oct. 1707, was inaugurated on the 14th of the succeeding January, and performed the duties of that office with distinguished honor to himself and advantage to the institution, until 3 May 1724, when he was found dead in his bed, having apparently deceased without a struggle. A bill for professional services rendered by Dr. Henry Hooper (who resided at the westerly corner of Brattle and Appleton streets) is preserved in the Library of the New England Hist. Gen. Society. If it does not throw any light on the cause of President Leverett's death, it indicates the manner of medical practice a hundred and fifty years ago:— Feb. 23d 1721-2 to July 21 1722.The Estate of ye Honble Mr. John Leverett Dr. Imps visit bleeding & dressing his armes£ 0.4.6 Feb. 23d 1721-2 to July 21 1722.Visit Extt dent. & dressing another ulcer that wanted digestion0.4.6 Feb. 23d 1721-2 to July 21 1722.Visit & dressing boath armes0.3.0 Feb. 23d 1721-2 to Jul
