r to many hearts, being full of sweet memories. From its highest hill, Stone's Mount, the prospect stretched wide and beautiful on every hand. A grand old oak stood on the summit; in the boughs of this a seat was constructed to which access was gained by a ladder of easy ascent. This was the favorite seat of the last owner of the ancestral acres. From this mount of vision could be descried by the aid of a spy-glass, Boston and its harbor and islands, Charlestown, the young towns beyond, Lynn and Salem far away and faintly lined, Watertown and West Cambridge (now Arlington) near by, Fresh Pond sparkling almost under his feet, the hills of Newton across the river, Brighton nearer still, the marshes, the winding river, classic Cambridge, historical Dorchester, and Roxbury — an unequalled panorama of town, village, hill, forest and many waters, orchards and gardens, meadows and fields of waving grain. No wonder the old oak furnished so great an attraction for its numerous visitors.

romantic interest. It was the theme of many a lay, and dear to many a heart. But the time came when it was to be yet dearer and more widely sacred, when as Mount Auburn it was to have a national reputation. Probably no place in the world was ever more naturally beautiful and appropriate for the city of the dead, or more atture holy grows, Feeling's deep current here more tranquil flows, A calm, a soothing influence o'er the heart These scenes so fair, so beautiful impart. Blest, O Mount Auburn, be thy leafy shades! Blest be thy hills, thy streams, thy cool, green glades! The solemn service of the dedication of the lovely grounds as the holy resting-place sacred to the dead was held in Mount Auburn, September 24, 1831. Calm was the morning of that lovely day, The autumnal sun in golden splendor lay On the smooth turf, the broad enamelled plain, The waving harvest field of ripened grain, And shed its glory o'er the forest wide, In rich and glowing colors deeply dyed.

Sweet Auburn and Mount Auburn. Mrs. Caroline F. Orne. Under these two names-Sweet Auburn and Mount Auburn — have the beautiful grounds, now endeared to countless hearts, been known and loved for more than a century. In 1635, Simon Stone, an English gentleman, came to New England with his family and settled on the banks of the Charles River; and his broad lands, after having passed from father to son in unbroken line of descent, for over two hundred years, form now portions of the Cambridge Cemetery and of Mount Auburn. In the former a small tablet, marked Simon Stone, denotes the spot where still lives and bears fruit one of the ancient pear trees planted by the pilgrim's hand, and looked on with reverential interest by his descendants to the eleventh generation. Stone's Mount, on which the Tower in Mount Auburn stands, formed a part also of the many acres of Simon Stone and his descendants.
