The latter now known Asar a Lugton. The Boston of 1030, called trl Moun talk was very different from the bos ton of its area was not extensive although it included the larger portion of Quincy out of which the town of Braintree was made at a later period. The first annexations to Boston were noodles Island East Bostons and the territory now covered by Cbelton 10� Boston lost its rights in Quin by which were acquired by the town of Braintree. Subsequent additions to Boston have been Roxbury Dorchester West Rox Wittry Brighton. Charlestown nud a part of Brookline. As in Independent municipality Charlestown which was settled As in Raj As Boston gave birth to Somerville. Woburn. Malden. Stoneham and Milford and furnished land to tost. Helped the boys. A Lett a that aroused King Christian of Denmark. King Christian of Denmark once found in Bis morning mall a letter which moved him More than did most matters of slate. The letter was in a Lio Elsb scrawl nud read As follows dear King we ure four boys at flak Keble re school and the master a Hope us Dally with a piece of steel rope he found in the Harbor.
