* The Debt of the Cemetery is kept separately from the ordinary City Debt, and pro- 
vision is made for the payment of the same by the proceeds of the sales of lots in the 
grounds, as will be seen by the following section from the Act obtained from the 
Legislature : — 

Sect. 4. " The proceeds of sales of lots or rights of burial in said Cemetery shall 
be paid into the City Treasury, to be kept separate from any other funds of the Cily, 
and subject to the order of said Commissioners, and such proceeds shall be devoted to 
the liquidation of the debt incurred in the purchase of the land for said Cemetery, and 
to the improvement and embellishment thereof, as aforesaid, under the direction of 
said Board of Commissioners. And no other moneys shall be appropriated from the 
City Treasury by the City Council for such improvement and embellishment."

HEPOKT 



OF THE 



OYERSEERS OF THE POOR. 



City of Roxbury, February 15, 1853. 
The Overseers of the Poor of the Citj of Roxbury, respect- 
fully submit the followmg 

REPORT: 

For the year ending -with the 31st ult., the Poor of this City 
have been located at Brook Farm, and the expediency of remov- 
ing them to that place, instead of remaining at the old estabhsh- 
ment upon Highland Street, is no longer an experiment. 

That they have been more appropriately provided for, and their 
physical condition benefited, is beyond dispute. In a pecuniary 
point of view we are satisfied the City has been benefited by the 
change ; the report of the expenses, compared with the preceding 
year, confirms it. 

The Brook Farm establishment has cost the City some |29,000, 
including the original purchase, and after the Commonwealth shall 
have provided their contemplated buildings for the reception of 
the State Paupers, (although there is no prospect of their being 
ready untU nearly the close of the present year,) it might appear 
that we could provide for the support of such paupers as properly 
belong to us in a less extensive estabhshment. But upon this 
point " It is a question whether or not the establishment cannot 
be sustained with greater economy to the City at Brook Farm, 
even after the State shall have removed the greater portion of the 
inmates, than at any other place," and the expediency of pro- 
viding a new place for the reception of our poor, or of retaining 
them at the present location, will devolve upon the City Council. 



52 

The Farm during the past year has been under the supervision 
of Mr. Meserve, the superintendent of the House, and to whose 
good judgment we feel that such a favorable report of its condition 
can be made as he presents. 

Of Mr. Meserve we can but repeat what has been uniformly said 
in former Reports, that he has been faithful in the discharge of his 
various callings, and we feel that the City is peculiarly fortunate 
in securing the services of a man so well adapted in every partic- 
ular to the place he occupies. 

The Report of the Physician, Dr. Ira Allen, is presented with 
this Report, by which it appears there has been less sickness 
than in former years, and by the Report of the Superintendent, 
and confirmed by actual observation of this Board, it further ap- 
pears that he has been very attentive to the wants and comforts 
of the sick. We are satisfied that he has applied himself with 
zeal and fidelity to his various duties, and, in our opinion, the 
department filled by him has been promptly and faithfully at- 
tended to. 

Rehgious services, on the Sabbath, in the early part of the 
year, were performed by Mr. Ritchie, but he was compelled, in 
consequence of more pressing claims, near home, to relinquish the 
charge ; since which time, and at the present, these duties have 
been very acceptably performed by students from the Theological 
Institution at Newton. 

The school now consists of sixty-two children, from five to fifteen 
years of age, — average age nine years. Since the last Report 
Mr. A. C. Page has taken charge of the school, and the scholars 
are at all times under his eye. The children are kept apart from 
the adult inmates of the house, and take their meals by themselves 
imder the teacher's inspection. During the summer the boys are 
required to attend to light work upon the Farm, which is not only 
amusing, but also promotes health and imparts mstruction ; this, 
however, does not interfere Avith their regular studies in the 
school room. From the Report of the School Committee, who 
visit the school every month, we learn that the school is in as good 
a condition as any school of like numbers in this City, and they 
also report that the teacher is not only competent, but devoted to 
his calling. When it is considered, that with a majority, prob- 
ably, under his charge, the education which they here acquire 
will be all they ever will receive, it becomes us, as also the School 
Committee, to look well to their interests, and that all that ought 
to be done for them be done cheerfully and A\dthout stint. 

The account against the Commonwealth for the support of 
*^ State Paupers" and " Ship Fever Patients," for the year end- 



53 

ing 31st of October, 1851, amounting to $5,824 85, was pre- 
sented at a proper time for allowance, and we have every reason 
to suppose the same would have been paid, but by the Rule ap- 
plied by the " State Auditor," and confirmed by the Committee 
on Accounts of the Legislature for 1852, only $3,262 67 was 
allowed, leaving $2,562 18 due on the same. Their deduction 
was made by disallowing our charge of $2 50 per week for " Ship 
Fever" cases, and allowing only seven cents per day, and also by 
refusing to allow any charge for the support of paupers who were 
not sick, notwithstanding they might be poor and have no means 
of support. 

The account against the Commonwealth for the support of 
State Paupers for the year ending 31st of October, 1852, amount- 
ing to $2,480 15, we have every reason to believe will be allowed 
and paid in full, as we have taken especial care not to make any 
charge against the Commonwealth which may or can be liable to 
the objections raised by the Auditor and Committee on Accounts 
for the previous year. It will be perceived that the bill is for a 
much less amount than that of the previous year, but it should not 
be considered that the City will receive the whole of its just claim 
against the State ; but by the Rule, as applied above, we consider 
the City is barred from its just and equitable claim. 

The following is a statement of the Receipts and Expenditures 
for the support of the Poor of the City from Feb. 1, 1852, to 
January 31, 1853, inclusive.

The most of the Beef was purchased in Brighton, and slaugh- 
tered here. 

The most of the ground cultivated, produced very well. I 
planted 5| acres to corn, and harvested on an average, 76^ bush- 
els to the acre. The potatoes were injured by the severe drought. 
The root crop was very good. I took from If acres of ground, 
30 tons of carrots. 

Much of the work has been done by the largest of the school 
boys, such as hoeing, weeding, &c., which I think has been for 
their interest, in learning the use of fanning implements and the 
mode of doing work properly. I have made some improvement 
the past Summer and Autumn, in ploughing and manurmg the 
meadow land. I have ploughed and sowed to grass seed of the 



5T 

meadow and upland, 10 acres. I have prepared and sowed 4| 
acres to winter rye. I have also prepared some of the ground for 
root crops, bj manuring and deep tilling with the two share plough, 
the one in advance of the other. I have a large quantity of ma- 
nure on the farm ready for use as soon as the Spring opens. I 
am happy to say to you that the removal of the inmates to Brook 
Farm has had a very evident effect upon them for the better. 
Being removed from the numberless unwholesome influences of 
the city, there is now no difficulty in keeping good order and so- 
briety. They perform their duties cheerfully, and appear to look 
with much satisfaction upon the fruits of their own industry. We 
have had religious services the most of the time during the year. 
The Rev. J. Ritchie preached the first part of the year, but we 
are now supplied by students from the Theological Institution at 
Newton. 

The Physician, Dr. Allen, has been very attentive during the 
year, and has been ready by day or night to attend to the sick 
and suffering. 

For a statement of the medical department please see physi- 
cian's report. My assistants have acquitted themselves of the 
various duties they have had to perform, cheerfully and satisfac- 
torily. Mr. A. C. Page, the school teacher, has been very atten- 
tive to his charge, and it has been marked with good results. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Isaac H. Meserve, 
Superintendent of Almshouse.

There have been eleven births in the house during the year. 
Many of those who are now under treatment were admitted with 
chronic diseases, and some of them beyond any hope of recovery, 
and necessarily require much care and attention to keep them 
comfortable. 

There have been admitted from West Ptoxbury to the Alms- 
house, a number of sick persons, for whom the Town has paid to 
this City for each of them, extra pay, for attendance, nursing, &c., 
some of whom are now under treatment in the Hospital. 

The sick have uniformly received every necessary attention 
from the Superintendent and wife, also from those under them, 
whose special duty is to take care of the sick. 

With many thanks for the uniform kindness and courtesy I 
have received from the Board the past year, 

I remain, very respectfully, your obedient servant, 

Iea Allen, 
Physician to the Almshouse.

REPORT 



COMMWIRS OF FOREST HILLS METERY. 



In conformity to the fifth section of " An Act relative to a Public 
Cemetery in the City of Roxbury," the Commissioners respect- 
fully submit their 

FIFTH ANNUAL REPORT. 

The interest which gathers around the consecrated spot, known 
as the Forest Hills Cemetery, has greatly increased during the 
past year. And as its beauties become gradually more and more 
developed, there is reason to expect that it will become an object 
of stronger and growing attraction, not only to those whose de- 
parted friends sleep within its hallowed enclosure, but to all who 
have taste to discern and sensibihty to appreciate its quiet loveli- 
ness, and its beautiful fitness as the resting place of the dead. 

During the past season it has been much frequented, so that a 
regular omnibus communication has been opened to convey per- 
sons to and from the grounds. This growing interest has mani- 
fested itself, also, in an increased demand for the purchase of lots 
in the Cemetery. In order to meet this demand and carry for- 
ward the projected improvements of the Cemetery, about thirty- 
three workmen, upon an average, have been employed during the 
year. During this time one hundred and twenty lots have been 
completed ; avenues and paths have been extended, and large 
portions of them thoroughly graded, by removing the loam and 
filling the excavation with stone and covering with gravel. This 



62 

process, though somewhat laborious and expensive, is deemed 
highly economical, as all improvements in this department of the 
Cemetery are of a permanent character, and Avill abide for suc- 
cessive generations. 

In the southerly part of the Cemetery, about ten acres have 
been planted -with a variety of forest trees, taken from the Forest 
Hills Nursery. A sufficient quantity of trees still remain in the 
nursery to plant over the whole unwooded portion of the Cemetery 
grounds. 

During the season, forty-six lots have been enclosed with iron 
fences, and six with hedges. Twenty-four monuments have been 
erected. One of the most attractive of these, is that noticed in 
the last Report as then contemplated, which the respect and love 
of the citizens of Roxbury and a few other friends, have erected 
to the memory of the lamented Dearborn. It stands upon the 
summit of that beautifid elevation known as Mount Dearborn. 
The cost of the monuments has varied from $100 to $1,500 each. 

In addition to these, monumental slabs, of various devices, have 
been placed in private lots to mark the spot w^here loved ones 
repose. 

Five family tombs have been constructed during the year. 

Two large receiving tombs, also, each 16 feet by 8 feet and 7 
feet high in the clear, have been built near Lake Dell, at the 
junction of Chestnut and Tupelo Avenues, at a cost of about 
$1,000. 

The Commissioners take pleasure in being able to report, that 
they have paid during the last year $3,406 57 of the principal of 
the notes given by the City to J. Parkinson, for land purchased 
of him for the Cemetery ; which, added to the sum of $343 12, 
previously paid, amounts to $3,749 69. 

The amounts now due on notes given by the City for Cemetery 
grounds are as follows, viz. : — 

Notes given to J. Parkinson, .... $4,200 00 
Notes given to Joel Seaverns on account of the 

first purchase of land, .... $19,944 98 

Notes given to Joel Seaverns for land purchased 

the last season, . . . . . $9,000 00 



Leaving a present debt for Cemetery lands of . $33,144 98 

There have been, durmg the last year, in private lots and in 
graves in the Field of Machpelah, 289 interments. 

The Commissioners have long felt the importance of adding to 
the Cemetery a part or all of the balance of the Seaverns farm ; 



63 

and previous to the last year several ineffectual efforts were made 
to obtain from the owner a price at which they could recommend 
to the City Government its purchase. Early the last Autumn, 
having obtained a price which was satisfactory to themselves, they 
immediately made known the same to the City Council, and re- 
commended the purchase. The City Council, Avith the exception 
of a single vote, unanimously passed an order authorizing the 
Commissioners to purchase the balance of the farm, and the City 
Treasurer to issue the scrip of the City for $9,000, in payment 
for the same. 

The amount of land contained in tliis purchase, accordmg to 
survey of C. H. Poole, is 32 acres 2 qrs. 36 rods. 

The Commissioners, in laboring to effect this purchase, were in- 
fluenced by several important considerations. The prospective 
need of a larger area for the purposes of the Cemetery seemed to 
render it desirable. The outhne of the Cemetery, by this pur- 
chase, is made much more regular and complete, — a corner is 
filled which before was wanting. The extent of fencing around 
the whole 104 acres 1 quarter and 6 rods, — the present amount of 
Cemetery gromids, — is but a trifle more than that around the 71 
acres 2 quarters 10 rods, the former area. 

The location of Lake Hibiscus, moreover, on the border of this 
land, prevented the extension of this beautiful sheet of water by 
excavation in that direction, or making any avenues or paths 
around it. 

Another acquisition in this purchase is the amount of sods 
which may be taken from its surface for the purposes of the Cem- 
etery. By reference to the expenditures of the Cemetery the last 
year, it will be seen that $802 31 were paid for sods. This sum 
does not include at least $200 worth of sods taken from this piece 
of land after its purchase. Something also is saved in the ex- 
pense of carting, by having sods near at hand. It is evident, 
therefore, that an amount will be saved to the Cemetery by this 
purchase in the smgle item of sods, more than equallmg the inter- 
est on $9,000, the cost of the land. 

The receipts and expenditures have been as folloAvs : —

The Commissioners would hardly do justice to their own con- 
victions not to allude, before closing their report, to the impor- 
tance which they attach to the enterprise entrusted to their hands. 

The few years which have elapsed since the opening of Forest 
Hills Cemetery have amply illustrated the need of such a sacred 
spot as the receptacle of our multiplying dead. And there is a 
grateful relief to stricken and crushed affection in depositing the 
cherished remains of its object beneath the shadow of living trees 
and the incense of fragrant flowers, wliich are the suggestive em- 
blems of a coming resurrection for the departed, rather than 
amidst the sombre and gloomy tokens of corruption and forgetful- 
ness, which once characterized our public burial grounds. 

And every passing year, as it gathers the departing members of 
our households, the honored and the loved, to their repose in this 
beautiful garden of graves, must enlist a continually increasing in- 
terest in the hving, to perfect and perpetuate those improvements 
and embellishments so happily commenced. No selfish or private 
interest can ever interfere, so far as we can see, with these improve- 
ments ; since by a wise Act of the Legislature of the Common- 
wealth, passed at the sohcitation of this City, all the receipts of 
the Cemetery must be applied to liquidate the debt incurred in the 
purchase of the grounds, and to improve and beautify the same 
perpetually. 

For their success hitherto, the Commissioners are greatly in- 
debted to the taste and skill, as well as to the judicious and in- 
defatigable efforts of Mr. Brims, the efficient Superintendent of 
the Cemetery. Their thanks are due, also, to J. W. Dudley, City 
Treasm-er, and to J. W. Tucker, City Clerk, for the prompt dis- 
charge of their respective duties, by which the endeavors of the 
Commissioners have been facilitated.

AN ACT 

In addition to An Act relating to a Public Cemetery in the City 

of Roxbury. 

J5e it enacted hy the Senate and Souse of Representatives, in 
General Court assembled, and by the authority of the same, as 
follows : 

Sect. 1. The board of commissioners of the rural cemetery in 
Roxbury, elected by the city council, pursuant to an act approved 
March 24, 1848, are authorized to take and hold any grant, do- 
nation or bequest of property, upon trust, to apply the same, or 
the income thereof, for the improvement or embellishment of the 
said cemetery, or for the erection, repair, preservation or renewal 
of any monument, fence or other erection, or for the planting and 
cultivation of trees, shrubs or plants, in or around any lot, or for 
improving the said premises in any other manner or form, consist- 
ent with the purposes for which said cemetery is established, ac- 
cording to the terms of such grant, donation or bequest. And 
whenever any such grant, donation or bequest, or any deposit 
shall be made by the proprietor of any lot in said cemetery, for 
the annual repair, preservation or embellishment of such lot and 
the erections thereon, the said commissioners may give to such 
proprietor, or his representative, an agreement or obligation, in 
such form and upon such terms and conditions as they may estab- 
lish, binding themselves and their successors to preserve and keep 
in repair said lot forever, or for such period as may be agreed 
upon. 



67 

Sect. 2. Any sums of money, so received by said commission- 
ers, shall be invested by the city treasurer of Roxbury, under the 
direction of said commissioners, in public stocks or mortgages of 
real estate, and all such property, received under the provisions 
of the foregoing section, (unless other provision is made by the 
terms of any such grant, donation or bequest,) shall be made 
under the charge of said city treasurer, but shall always remain 
separate from and independent of any other moneys or property 
belonging to the city of Roxbury, and free from the control of the

received by said treasurer, subject to the order of said commis- 
sioners, and shall be appropriated by them in such manner as 
shall, in their opinion, best promote the purposes for which said 
grants, donations, bequests or deposits are made. 

Sect. 3. The city of Roxbury shall be responsible for the good 
faith of said commissioners, and the treasurer of said city, in the 
execution of any trust which they may assume pursuant to the

be expressed in the agreement given by them as aforesaid, or in 
the terms and conditions under which they accept any grant, do- 
nation or bequest. 

Sect. 4. This act shall be void unless the city council of Rox- 
bury shall accept the same, at a meeting of said council called for 
that purpose, within thirty days after its passage. 

Sect. 5. This act shall take effect from and after its pas- 
sage. — \_Passed February 25, 1852.]
