Editor's Comment.

In a personal interview Mrs. Brigham mentions interesting facts about the Medford of her childhood days; of the Indians that came on the river to Rock hill and up ‘Woburn lane’ to the ‘Rocks,’ as the Middlesex Fells used to be called; of the digging for the ‘pirate's treasure near the big rock;’ and of a family burial-ground in our old town.

There are older people than she, long resident here, [p. 19] who ought to be able to add their bit to historic fact relating to Medford, which the Register's pages will preserve.

Mrs. Brigham's paper on Mystic Hall Seminary, read before the Historical Society eleven years ago (see Regis-Ter, Vol. XI, p. 49) is the only historical mention extant of a once famous Medford school.
