preparation with his father just before that father's death. The inhabitants of Medford were anxious to have this promising young man become their physician, and invited him to the office; which he accepted. Entering upon his practice with confidence and reputation given in advance, as if his father had bequeathed to him his knowledge and experience, he had only to answer the expectations of his friends. He did this, and more. He was born Jan. 16, 1727, and graduated at Harvard College in 1744. At his father's death he had not attained his majority. The care of his mother and her six children devolved, in great measure, on him. Encouraged by friends at home, and having the promise of aid in his medical practice from Dr. Brattle, of Cambridge, he took courage. His mild yet truthful character commanded the respect, while it won the affection, of all. His classmates considered him a ripe Latin scholar, and a boon companion. He had the talent of agreeableness. He received from his
ew meeting-house. The award was drawn up in form, and was final, and it placed three or four persons anew! June 26, 1740: The town voted to place a bell on the meeting-house; but, as it was decided to purchase the bell with money which should be raised from the sale of bricks owned by the town, the bell was not bought, because the bricks were not sold. However, this appendage to a meeting-house, so necessary in those days, when watches were not as plenty as they are now, was furnished in 1744 by certain liberal gentlemen of the town.; and five pounds was paid for ringing it a year. Jan. 15, 1733: Voted to repair the steeple of the meeting-house, to put a pulley on the front door, and make a convenient horse-block. July 23, 1736: Voted that John Bradshaw, jun., should have liberty to cut a door-place and make a door at the south end of the meeting-house into his pew. So near to Marble Brook was this house placed, that, on the 3d of December, 1745, the town voted to take al
oods, near Governor Cradock's house. In a rock on the north-east border of Medford, near the corner of Melrose, is a deep excavation, called Bear's Den. Oct. 8, 1738.--Governor Belcher attended meeting in Medford, Sunday. Rev. Mr. Turell preached. Rev. Joshua Tufts preached in Medford, Aug. 24, 1740. A species of very destructive worm appeared in July, 1743. They destroyed both grass and corn. Mr. Turell preached, July 3, on the event, from Lam. III. 39, and Ezek. XVIII. 25. 1744.--A long-tailed comet, of unusual brightness, frightened some of our people more than Mr. Whitefield had; but a wag here said, that he thought it the most profitable itinerant preacher and friendly new-light that had yet appeared. 1745.--Medford voted thus: Any person who allows his dog to go into the meeting-house on Sunday shall pay ten shillings (old tenor) for each offence. 1749.--Some idea of travelling expenses may be obtained from the acts of the town relative to their farm on th
