An old-time Deed.

Heirs of John Winthrop to Benanuel Bowers. About 4 acres of Marshland, Bounded, westerly by a line beginning at the mouth of a little creek and running from the said creek to a salt pond and from there to a stake down by the river side; and on all other sides by the Mistick river, together with a right of way through the farm to the highway.

Feb. 22, 1670.

Recorded in Book 8, Page 357, June 15, 1683.

This is Labor-in-Vain point as it was before the canal or highway was cut through, making the point an island [p. 64] as it is at the present day. The little creek was that part of Two-penny brook through the salt marsh. The salt pond was in the line of the canal or highway.
