baptism to them or their children. This order, called the half-way covenant, was established in the Medford church in Mr. Porter's ministry, and was re-affirmed Dec. 2, 1724. Mr. Thomas Hall was chosen deacon, 1726. June 18, 1731: Mr. Benjamin Willis was chosen deacon in the room of Brother Thomas Willis, deceased. It appears from the church records, that some members wished a more definite rule and searching scrutiny respecting the admission of communicants, and therefore revived t cannot be alleged to be any part of our reformation from Popish superstition. 1759: Chose Brother Ebenezer Brooks a deacon, unanimously. March 24, 1767: Brothers Isaac Warren and Samuel Kidder were chosen deacons. March 7, 1763: Deacon Benjamin Willis, Deacon Jonathan Bradshaw, Deacon Ebenezer Brooks, Dr. Simon Tufts, Captain Caleb Brooks, Stephen Hall, Esq., Samuel Brooks, Esq., Mr. Samuel Angier, and Mr. Hugh Floyd, were chosen a Committee to treat with Rev.

Paupers coming upon the town were thought to be like angels' visits only in one respect,--they were few and far between. Another is introduced to our notice in the following record: April 25, 1728: Voted to support the widow Willis as we have done, she being more than ordinarily troublesome. Ten pounds were voted. Dec. 3, 1737: Voted that the town will not choose overseers of the poor. For many succeeding years, Medford took the same care of its poor as did other to

The plan was, to take you and Mr. Thompson to the Common, strip, tar-and-feather you, and then dye your face and hands black in a manner that would never change from a night negro color. One of the young men told me that nothing but the energy and decision of the Mayor and his assistants saved you from your destined fate. According to E. N. Moore, it was a room-mate of his and Rand's, Ben. Willis, a very stout boy for his years, and full of the old Nick, who directed the mob to Wilson's Lane, discovered Mr. Garrison in his concealment, and put the rope around his body, holding on to it till knocked away by the rescuers (Boston Sunday Budget, Mar. 18, 1883). A cord was put around his body, under the arms. Several in the crowd sang out, Don't throw him out! Don't hurt him!

rant for Isaac Royall, Senior, issued in 1734, a pair of spectacles inscribed The gift of I. Royall to Simon Tufts, Esq., and a silver communion plate bequeathed to the Church of Christ in Medford were all the exhibits which referred personally to the ancient owners of the house. A special act of the General Court was necessary before the plate could be accepted by the church in Medford. There were interesting letters from Revolutionary soldiers in camp and in prison, the diary of Deacon Benjamin Willis, a prominent Medford citizen before the Revolution, and a few old love letters, among them one written by Parson Turell. Autograph letters of Samuel Sewall, Thomas Jefferson, Governor Brooks, Dr. Osgood, and other papers of especial interest to students of Medford history, over one hundred in all, made a valuable collection. From far and near visitors came to see the historic edifice, and one and all were charmed with the artistic arrangement of the house and marvelled that such
