The History of the Reed Family, by J. W. Reed, p. 39, states, There was a Dr. Samuel Read of Stafford in England, who, in 1646 (1636?), furnished one Cook with funds to build a gristmill in Cambridge, Mass, and took a mortgage of the same.

ctators; the disobedient Monmouth was welcomed with bonfires and peals of bells; a panic was created, as if every Protestant freeman were to be massacred, every wife and daughter to be violated; the kingdom was divided into districts among committees to procure petitions for a parliament, one of which had twenty thousand signatures, and measured three hundred feet; and at last the most cherished Anglo-Saxon institution was made to do service, when Shaftesbury, proceeding 1680 June 16. to Westminster, represented to the grand jury the mighty dangers from Popery, indicted the duke of York as a recusant, and reported the duchess of Portsmouth, the kings new mistress, as a common neusance. 1680 Oct. and 1681 Mar. The extreme agitation was successful; and in two successive parliaments, in each of which men who were at heart dissenters had the majority, the bill for excluding the duke of York was passed by triumphant votes in Penn the house of commons, and defeated only by the lords and

It was the interest of Bute to see Pitt at the head of affairs, for Pitt alone had opposed him as a minister without animosity towards him as a man. They who had sided with him when in power, now so dreaded to share his unpopularity, that they made a parade of chap. VIII.} 1763. Aug. proscribing him, and wished not only to deprive him of influence, but to exile him from the court and from Westminster. He, therefore desired, and long ugcontinued to desire, to see Pitt in office, of whose personal magnanimity he was sure. The wish was inconsistent with the politics of the times; but the moment was one when parties in England, though soon to be consolidated, were as yet in a nebulous state, and very many of the time-serving public men, even Charles Townshend himself, were entirely at fault. The real option lay between a government by the more liberal aristocracy under popular influenc

Sept. act; I have only to say, it is an act of the parliament of Great Britain; and I trust that the supremacy Sept of that parliament over all the members of their wide and diffused empire, never was, and never will be, denied within these walls. The right of the parliament of Great Britain to make laws for her American colonies, however it has been controverted in America, remains indisputable at Westminster. If it is yet to be made a question, who shall determine it but the parliament? If the parliament declares, that their right is inherent in them, are they likely to acquiesce in an open and forcible opposition to the exercise of it? Will they not more probably maintain such right, and support their own authority? The gentlemen who opposed this act in the House of Commons, did not dispute the authority of parliament to make such a law, but argued upon the inexpediency of it at this t

The people of England had once adopted that opinion. It was certain that the people of America were already convinced that the House of Lords had outlived its functions, and was for them become worse than useless. On the morning of the eighteenth day of March, the king went in state to Westminster, and gave his assent, among other bills, to what ever after he regarded as the well-spring of all his sorrows, the fatal repeal of the Stamp Act. He returned from signing the repeal, amid the shouts and huzzas of the applauding multitude. There was a public dinner of the friends of America in honor of the event; Bow bells were set a ringing; and on the Thames the ships displayed all their colors. At night a bonfire was kindled, and houses were illuminated all over the city. An expre

The Regiments which had been sent at their suggestion were pronounced to be useless, because they were inactive. Disheartened by the appearance of moderation in the British Government, they complained that their accusations which had, as they thought, been fully certified, had not been noticed at Westminster for Treason. The choice of Representatives showed the sense of the people. The town of Boston, on coming together, demanded the withdrawal of the soldiery during the election; but they were only confined within the barracks while the ballot was taken. Of five hundred and eight votes that were cast, the four old representatives, Otis, Cushing, Samuel Adams, and Hancock, received more than five hundred. They were instructed to insist on the departure of the army from the town and Prov
plaints of America and of Ireland, not less than the discontent of England at the disfranchisement of Wilkes. It is vain and idle to found the authority of this House upon the popular voice, said Charles Jenkinson, pleading for the absolute independence of Parliament. The discontents that are held up as spectres, said Thomas de Grey, brother of the Attorney General, are the senseless clamors of the thoughtless, and the ignorant, the lowest of the rabble. The Chap. XLII.} 1770. Jan. Westminster petition was obtained by a few despicable mechanics, headed by base-born people. The privileges of the people of this country, interposed Serjeant Glynn, do not depend upon birth and fortune; they hold their rights as Englishmen, and cannot be divested of them but by the subversion of the Constitution. Were it not for petition-hunters and incendiaries, said Rigby, the farmers of Yorkshire could not possibly take an interest in the Middlesex election of representatives in Parliament. Bu
