MOUNT AUBURN CEMETERY. 










Sir, 

It is doubtless well known to you that the beautiful grounds 
Qf Mount Auburn have been purchased and enclosed by the 
Massachusetts Horticultural Society, and that a part of them have 
been converted into a Cemetery. The Society are desirous of 
still further embellishing and adapting these grounds to the pur- 
poses of an ornamented burial-place. It is their wish also to 
complete the laying out of a Garden, and to build a Cottage on 
the premises, for the residence of a Superintendant and Gardener. 

The success of the design has, thus far, fully equalled the ex- 
pectations of its friends. The amount received from the sale of 
lots in the Cemetery, is about $12,000, the whole of which has 
been expended in the purchase of land, the construction of ave- 
nues, the building of a fence round the estate, and other neces- 
sary charges. It is very important to commence additional im- 
provements at an early period the next spring, and, in fact, many 
of them could be carried on during the present season, if the 
funds were adequate ; but they are at present insufficient. It is 
the object of the society to awaken attention to this subject, in 
the hope of increasing their means of improving and embellishing 
this interesting spot. 

The Committee of the Horticultural Society, who are charged 
with the management of this property, earnestly invite your atten-

By contributing'a moderate 'sum* to the funds of this Society, 
you will lend your aid to the accomplishment of a work of great 
public ornament and utility. A person will call upon you, in a 
few days, to receive your reply to this application.

TERMS OF SUBSCRIPTION. 

The price of a lot, containing 300 square feet, with liberty to use one 
foot in width on each boundary, for the erection of a wall or fence, is sixty 
dollars. 

Any lot already laid out and unsold may be taken by a subscriber or pur- 
chaser, and he who first reports his selection to the Secretary of the Garden 
and Cemetery Committee, will be entitled to the preference. 

A new lot will be surveyed and laid out for any subscriber, on his paying 
the additional sum of ten dollars. 

A sufficient number of lots will be surveyed to supply all the subscribers, 
and the right of selecting from them will be sold at auction in June next. 



Q3 3 A lot is laid out in Cypress Avenue, SO by 60 feet, and is now being 
enclosed by an iron fence, in which single interments may be made on 
payment of ten dollars. 

Oliver B. Alexander, Undertaker, has charge of the receiving tomb, 
under Park-street Church, and also of that at Mount Auburn. He may be 
found at the house in rear of St. Paul's Church.
