ourt, Gage prorogued that body, and the representatives, who reported at Salem, organized as a Provincial Congress. In the course of a few days they adjourned to Concord, and after a short session in that place adjourned to Cambridge, where they met October 17, and proceeded with their deliberations. Among other acts of the courtat our citizens did and suffered on that day. It will be sufficient for our purposes if we note that the path of the British troops, both going to and coming from Concord, lay through our territory. Twenty-six lives were lost within the boundaries of what then constituted Cambridge, six of which were of inhabitants of the town. Ted by the American army. The college buildings were made use of as barracks. The library and apparatus of the college were first removed to Andover, and then to Concord, where for a time instruction was given. The Episcopal church was converted into barracks, and many private houses were taken for the same purpose, or for hospit
figures which are as yet but slightly historic will rise to the imagination as bringing the glory of true literature to overshine the town and make it one of those bright spots on the airy globe of the human spirit which is so charted as to make Concord and Ambleside more conspicuous than, let us say, Jersey City and Leeds. That fine, poetic nature who brought his sensitive English conscience to the New England, where the conscience had been more sturdily cultivated, Arthur Hugh Clough, left aame of a man who was catholic in his taste, and so universal in his poetic sympathy as to miss appreciation chiefly from those who wish better bread than can be made of fine wheat. During his lifetime, Longfellow made Cambridge as Emerson made Concord, the port to which all craft put in that sailed over the seas of literature. His name is identified with the place, and the pages of his diary are set thick with the names of men and women who lifted the knocker on his door. And now that he ha
3, 1870, Rev. Dr. McKenzie delivered a very interesting and suggestive address. He said most eloquently that it was pleasant for us to remember that our domain was wider then than now, and with a worthy pride we claim the glory of Menotomy for the praise of Cambridge. Arlington may guard their dust, Cambridge will overleap the narrow brook and claim them for her own, and let the 19th of April, 1775, hereafter be known, as it always should have been, as the day of the battle of Lexington, Concord, and Cambridge. More men were killed and wounded within the then limits of Cambridge than in all the other towns. With the names on the monument Dr. McKenzie also suggested adding the prophetic vision of Samuel Adams, Oh! what a glorious morning is this! The full inscription is: Erected by the city, A. D. 1870 to the memory of John Hicks,—William Marcy,—Moses Richardson, buried here. Jason Russell,—Jabez Wyman,—Jason Winship, buried in Menotomy. men of Cambridge, who fell in defence
d others, thus bringing the college and those that choose of the people into a touch helpful and inspiring to both. To these advantages may be added finally that indefinable atmosphere which comes from historic and literary associations unmatched elsewhere in the western world, the very breath of which is an education not to be despised. The Newtowne of 1631; the Harvard of 1636; the old burying ground where lie the early presidents of the college; the holiday routes of the British to Concord and Lexington; the bloody routes of their return; the elm where Washington took command of the army, the mansion where he lived with Lady Washington, the little church that both attended; the site of the ramparts thrown up in the siege of Boston; the winding road—old Tory Row—by which the army of Washington marched out of Cambridge for New York and by which, not long after, the army of Burgoyne from New York marched into Cambridge; Hollis, Stoughton, Holworthy, and the rest,—the sometime ho<
, 1775. From this press, says a contemporary, issued streams of intelligence and those patriotic songs and tracts which so preeminently animated the defenders of American liberty. But when the American army removed from Cambridge a year later the Chronicle and Gazette seems to have suspended publication. It is very evident there was no newspaper in this town in July, 1786, for when a letter to the selectmen of Cambridge requesting their concurrence in a county convention, to be held in Concord on August 23, in order to consult upon matters of public grievances and find out means of redress, with its answer, was ordered to be printed by our selectmen, it appeared, July 27, 1786, in the Boston Independent Chronicle. There is a bare possibility, however, from the similarity of name, that our Cambridge Chronicle and Gazette had been moved into Boston as a broader field for journalistic enterprise. Be that as it may, it is a somewhat singular fact that Cambridge, where the first p
Bishop Fitzpatrick, bought a lot of land on Spring Street for the purpose of erecting a new church, but the health of Father Donohue did not permit him to pursue the work, and he died on March 5, 1873. During the eleven years of his pastorate the affairs of the parish were well conducted, and never was St. John's Church in a more prosperous condition than at the time of his decease. Fathers Rossi and Shinnick were his assistants. On the 8th of March the Rev. John O'Brien was taken from Concord and appointed to the parish of St. John's, the bishop recognizing in him the eminent qualifications necessary for the charge of this parish and the erection of a new and spacious church, such as was contemplated. After a meeting of the parishioners, when it was found that the lot purchased by the bishop was unsuited in some particulars, a site at the corner of Otis and Sixth streets was secured, and purchased on July 23. No delay was made, and the foundation was finished and the corner-s
y children comfortably. This was completed and occupied in December, 1891, and by the sale of the estate on Avon Place in the following summer the trustees avoided the possibility of any indebtedness. The land, nearly 70,000 square feet, cost $13,952.75, and the house $21,740.78; a fire-escape was afterwards added, making the total cost $36,239.51. In 1892 the founder of the Home showed his continued interest in its prosperity by the gift of a farm of one hundred and twenty acres in Concord, Mass., which it is his desire, as it is the wish of the trustees, to use for the older boys, where they may learn farming and other outdoor occupations, or for the more delicate little children, where they may get a change of air. At present this cannot be done on account of the great additional expense, and the farm is rented. The cost of maintenance is now over $5000 a year; the greater part of this is met by the income from the invested funds, by the proceeds of fairs, and by the small a
