f such a man. He sent out work from here that traveled far and reached many firesides. Thousands knew him through his books and called his books good. We who knew the man also call his books good; but we call the man better than his books.

Hon. Charles Hicks Saunders By Charles D. Elliot. Honorary member of this society, was born in Cambridge, Mass., November 10, 1821, and died there December 5, 1901. He was descended from Martin Saunders, who came from England to Boston in 1635, and also, from John Hicks, a member of the Boston Tea Party, who was killed in the battle of Lexington. He was educated in the public schools of Cambridge, and in the Hopkins Classical School. He early became connected with the Suffolk Bank of Boston, soon after entering into business on his own account, from which he retired at the age of forty-two. He was an alderman in 1861 and 1862, and was active in his efforts for the soldiers of the Civil War. In 1868 and 1869 he was chosen with great unanimity mayor of Cambridge, and held public offices and honorary positions in that city for many years. As local historian he had few, if any, superiors. It was through his efforts that the many historic spots of Cambridge were marked wi
Hon. Isaac Story by Charles D. Elliot. He was born in Marblehead, Mass., November 4, 1818, died, in Somerville December 19, 1901, and was son of Isaac and Sarah Martin (Bowen) Story.

He fought in the battles of Lexington and Bunker Hill beside General Warren, an intimate friend, and later was in charge of the wounded at Winter Hill, and was with Washington at Long Island, White Plains, and Trenton. His maternal grandfather, Sergeant, afterwards Lieutenant, Nathan Bowen, was one of the soldiers who, under General Heath, guarded the Hessian prisoners on Winter Hiil, and his father, Isaac Story, commanded the Marblehead Light Infantry in the

The Stinted Common by Charles D. Elliot. The early settlers of Charlestown built their homes not far from the present City square, and then lotted out the remainder of the peninsula into corn fields and planting lots. Farming and stock raising were among their chief employments, and as the peninsula was too small for tillage and pasturage both, they agreed and concluded that their cattle should be pastured outside the neck upon the main land, and they chose for grazing grounds lands which are now a large part of the city of Somerville. This territory belonged to the town. It is variously spoken of in the old records as the main, the Cow commones, the Stinted Pasture, the Stinted Common, and the land without the neck, meaning the land beyond the neck. This tract embraced what is now East Somerville, Prospect, Central, and Spring hills, the southerly slope of Winter hill, and a considerable portion of West Somerville, its boundaries not being very clearly defined at that tim
y, will certainly furnish data of permanent worth. 1899: February 16, The Stinted Common (a term applied to a large area of Somerville in the early days), Charles D.

eat distinction. He died last year at Athol, Mass. William W. Wardell, of the First Massachusetts Cavalry, was promoted to the rank of first lieutenant in that regiment, and died from wounds May 28, 1864. He was a very fine officer. Charles D. Elliot, appointed civil engineer in the Army November 23, 1862, and assigned to the Department of the Gulf, was on duty on staffs of Generals Franklin, Ashboth, and Grover, and under fire in the battle of Bisland, siege of Port Hudson, and expeditof equal ability from civil life, whose aid was indispensable, from being commissioned; but these assistants were not exempt from peril for that reason, but did their full share of hazardous duty. The nine engineers from civil life, including Mr. Elliot, who served at the front in the Department of the Gulf in 1863–‘64, lost in action three killed and one wounded; also one from disease contracted in the service. The sixth, we fervently hope, will survive very many campaigns in the Somerville
