at Bath, April 3, 1806, aged 92. Mr. Helyer succeeded Mr. Gardner as colleague with Mr. Clap. See N. E. Hist. Gen. Reg., vol. XV. pp. 66 and 234. He was brother-in-law of Rev. Joshua Gee. See also Clapp Memorial, p. 204. 1738 An attempt having again been made in the latter part of 1737 to ask the advice of the neighboring clergy with respect to settling a minister, on Feb. 21, 1737-8, Mr. Daniel Rogers was chosen minister. The result was unsuccessful. Rev. Daniel Rogers, of Littleton (H. U. 1725), is named in the Proprietors' Records of Cambridge, in 1767. Hence early in the following year, Wednesday, Mar. 21, 1738-9, was set apart for a day of fast, and Rev. Messrs. Hancock, Appleton, Storer and Turell were again desired to assist with counsel, advice, &c. Mr. Thomas Prentice was therefore chosen minister (April 23, 1739) by unanimous vote, and his answer desired with convenient speed; but it was a negative one, The Rev. Thomas Prentice, H.

erogative and the people of Virginia. When a boy, he had learned something of Latin; of Greek, the letters; but nothing methodically. It had been his delight to wander alone with the gun or the angling-rod; or by some sequestered stream to enjoy the ecstasy of meditative idleness. He married at eighteen; attempted trade; toiled unsuccessfully as a farmer; then with buoyant mind resolved on becoming a lawyer; and answering questions successfully by the aid of six weeks study of Coke upon Littleton and the Statutes of Virginia, he gained a license as a barrister. For three years the novice dwelt under the roof of his father-in-law, an inn-keeper near Hanover Courthouse, ignorant of the science of law, and slowly learning its forms. On the first day of December, as Patrick Henry entered the court, before which he had never spoken, chap. IX.} 1763.

rising ground above Concord bridge had increased to more than four hundred. Of these there were twenty-five minute men from Bedford, with Jonathan Wilson for their captain; others were from Westford, among them Thaxter, a preacher; others from Littleton, from Carlisle, and from Chelmsford. The Acton company came last, and formed on the right. The whole was a gathering not so much of officers and soldiers, as of brothers and equals; of whom every one was a man well known in his village, obserd road. There they were reinforced by men who were coming in from all around, and at that point the chase of the English began. Among the foremost were the minute men of Reading, led by John Brooks, and accompanied by Foster the minister of Littleton as a volunteer. The company of Billerica, whose inhabitants, in their just indignation at Nesbit and his soldiers, had openly resolved to use a different style from that of petition Chap. XXVIII} 1775.

pleasing. But he was also possessed of much force of character, and of independent mind. A sermon of his in favor of inoculation for smallpox showed some courage in that day when it was thought that the use of this preventive agency was flying in the face of Providence. More important was the calmness of his judgment and his critical discrimination upon the subject of witchcraft. He published a pamphlet about this, making a careful analysis of a case of witchcraft which had occurred in Littleton, in which he exposed the tricks which two sisters had played upon the easy credulity of the community and equally upon that of their parents. I am struck too with the poise of his mind in the religious excitements, so-called, which were inaugurated by Rev. Geo. Whitefield. In 1742 he published a pamphlet called A Direction to my People in relation to the Present Times, in which the excesses of emotional fervor are declaimed against and a religion founded on truth and soberness is commend
