int Bridge is said to have been erected by virtue of a charter, granted June 21, 1806, to Samuel H. Flagg and others, as Proprietors of the Prison Point dam Corporation, for building a damn from Prison Point in Charlestown to Lechmere's Point in Cambridge, and erecting mills on the same. No dam was constructed nor mill erected: but in 1815, Prison Point Bridge was built for the benefit of Canal Bridge; and this is presumed to have been done under authority of the charter for a dam granted in 1806, partly because that charter authorized the proprietors to construct a travelling path across the dam, not less than thirty feet in width, and partly because in an act relative to the Boston and Lowell Railroad Corporation, March 5, 1832, Prison Point Bridge is repeatedly called the Branch or Prison Point Dam Bridge. Mass. Spec. Laws, VII. 223. This bridge was laid out as a county road in January, 1839. River Street Bridge was built for the advantage of the West Boston Bridge Proprietor

Proprietors' Records. It does not appear, however, that any such building was erected. An ineffectual attempt was also made in 1806 by prominent men in Cambridgeport to induce the County to erect a court house on the easterly side of what was long called the meeting-house lot, bounded by Broadway, and Bordman, Harvard, and Columbia streets. Andrew Craigie and his associates were more successful. Having given ample grounds, and erected a court house and jail at an expense of $24,000, as related in chapter XIII., they were rewarded by the removal of the courts and records in 1816 to the edifices prepared for them, where th

hip has since been conducted within the College Chapel by the Faculty of the Theological School. Quincy's Hist. H. U., II. 310. Appleton Chapel subsequently became the stated place of worship, and after about forty years the ex-officio service of the Theological Faculty ceased; since which time the church has been under the care of a pastor specially designated by the Corporation of the College. The successive pastors and stated preachers have been,— Rev. Henry Ware, H. C. 1785, D. D. 1806, from 1814 to 1840. Rev. Dr. Kirkland officiated as joint pastor, until he resigned the Presidency of the College in 1828. Rev. Henry Ware, Jr., H. C. 1812, D. D. 1834, from 1840 to 1842. Rev. Convers Francis, H. C. 1815, D.

C. 1782. He was ordained at Weston Nov. 5, 1783, where he died Feb. 16, 1814. He received the degree of D. D. from Yale College, 1806. at the rate of thirty pounds per annum, and his board to be found for him, it being upon the same terms that Mr. Kendall kept it. Fifty years later, it appears by the Report of the Auditing Committee, April 19, 1833, that the salary of the schoolmasters (of whom there were then five) was five hundred and fifty dollars,—each providing his own board; since which time the amount of salary has been more than quadrupled.
