Remington, Esq., be a committee to inspect the Grammar School in this town, and to inquire (at such times as they shall think meet) what proficiency the youth and children make in their learning. Again, May 7, 1770, it was Voted, That a committee of nine persons be and hereby are fully empowered to chuse a Grammar Schoolmaster for said town,—the Hon. Judge Danforth, Judge Lee, Col. Oliver, Judge Sewall, Mr. Abraham Watson, Jr., Mr. Francis Dana, Major Vassall, Mr. Samuel Thacher, Jr., Mr. Professor Winthrop, they or the major part of the whole being notified, and that said committee be a committee of inspection upon the said schoolmaster, and that said committee be and hereby are empowered to regulate said school. Generally, however, the schools were under the charge of the Selectmen until March 23, 1795, when a committee, consisting of Caleb Gannett, Mr. G

This arrangement was not wholly satisfactory. He had occupied the hdesire General Washington to let them know if there is any house at Cambridge, that would be more agreeable to him and General Lee than that in which they now are; and in that case, the said committee are directed to procure such house, and put it il Ward, consisted of two brigades, commanded by Brigadier-generals Thomas and Spencer. The left wing, commanded by Major-general Lee, consisted of two brigades, under Brigadier-generals Sullivan and Greene. The centre, at Cambridge, commanded by Mdes.

appointed, in 1771, Major-general of the Militia throughout the Province; and from this time the Government had not a more devoted servant. On the other hand. his subserviency to British power did not secure all which he desired. He was doubtless gratified with the commission of Major-general; but, after nearly twenty years service as a member of the Council, he must have been mortified and chagrined, when he learned that he was not named as a Mandamus Councillor, but was superseded by Judge Lee, and still worse, by Col. Oliver, his subordinate officer, both as Councillor and Lieutenant-governor. His fate furnishes a sad example of the folly of attempting to serve two masters. He took shelter in Boston when the people became roused to action; he had gone too far ever to reinstate himself in their good opinion, and his only alternative was to put his trust under the shadow of British power. In Dec. 1774, ostensibly for the consideration of £ 1,500 sterling, he conveyed to his so
