established in different parts of the State. Among the earliest of these were Camp Andrew, in West Roxbury, and Camp Cameron, in North Cambridge. Afterwards camps were laid out at Lynnfield, Pittsfield, Boxford, Readville, Worcester, Lowell, Long Island, and a few other places. The Three-months militia required no provision for their shelter, as they were ordered away soon after reporting for duty. Faneuil Hall furnished quarters for a part of them one night. The First Massachusetts Regims and partially fitted up for barracks, and Readville (Mass.) Barracks.: from a Photograph. established their first camp.

I could not write to my father; I could not forgive him, when I thought how he had grieved Mary and me; and I could not be deceitful.

Sometimes I thought I would go home to Ireland, and see what was the matter. At last, one day, my employer came into the garden with a newspaper in his hand. Mr. Crumley, says he, here is something for you; and sure enough there was a line to John C
