n at Kittery Point, Maine, in 1696. He died at Kittery, June 6, 1759. Colonel Royal was appointed one of the Mandamus Councillors for this Province by his Majesty, Aug. 9, 1794; but he did not take the oath of office. 1743: He gave Charlestown £ 100, which was used to build a parsonage. While Representative, he returned to the town treasury his salary. In 1745, he gave £ 80 to the school on Charlestown Neck. By his will, he gave to Medford one hundred acres of land in Granby (South Hadley), for the use and better support of the common schools of the town. This Granby farm was sold, 1788, for one hundred dollars, to Mr. Richard Hall. Generosity was native with him, and shone the salient feature of his character. He loved to give, and loved to speak of it, and loved the reputation of it. Hospitality, too, was almost a passion with him. No house in the Colony was more open to friends; no gentleman gave better dinners, or drank costlier wines. As a master, he was kind to

After the Revolution, the States of Virginia and Maryland took measures which resulted in the formation of the famous Potomac Company, to carry out Washington's project. In 1784 Washington revived a project for making a canal through the Dismal Swamp, not only for drainage, but for navigation between the Elizabeth River and Albemarle Sound. The oldest work of the kind in the United States is a canal, begun in 1792, 5 miles in extent, for passing the falls of the Connecticut River at South Hadley. The earliest completed and most important of the great canals of our country is the Erie, connecting the waters of Lake Erie with those of the Hudson River. A committee appointed by Congress during Jefferson's administration reported in favor of this canal, and a survey was directed to be made. Commissioners were appointed in 1810, who reported to Congress in March, 1811. In consequence of the War of 1812, the project languished until 1817. In that year ground was broken for the Eri

s continued the motive power and main spring of that first of American schools for young women. And her reward was not long delayed It came in the triumph of her own school. It came in the increased stimulus she had given to the cause of woman's education. It came in the readier facilities accorded to young women in our collegiate institutions; and still more signally in those large institutions expressly for women which her success had made possible. We can now readily see how much South Hadley, Oberlin, Antioch, Packer, and Vassar are indebted to her pioneer work. While achieving this success at home, she had not been unmindful of the claims of woman abroad. In 1830 she had sought abroad the rest and health which her home duties required, and the relief from her professional work gave her the opportunity to examine the educational condition of women in other lands Her womanly heart was touched with the report which came to her of the degraded condition of woman in classic G
