Making the total City Debt at this time, . . $246,040 95 

The times when this sum becomes payable, may be seen by re- 
ferring to the schedule of the City Debt, accompanying this 
report. 

There has been received from the sales of land, the sum of 
$11,115 92 ; and of this sum, there has been appropriated 
towards the reduction of the City Debt, in conformity to a vote of 
the City Council, $8,825 ; and the balance, except the amount 
paid for interest, now remains in the Treasury. 

There remain in the Treasury, notes of sundry individuals 
secured by mortgage, of $51,043 80, which, as they become 
due, will be appropriated to the hquidation of the City Debt, as 
directed. 

The expenditures for Schools show an increase over the pre- 
ceding year of some $3,000. 

By an order of the City Council, the pay of the officers and 
members of the Fire Department has been increased, which ac- 
counts for the excess of expenditure over the preceding year. 
The contingent expenses of the Department, however, show a 
reduction for the same time. 

The Police Department shows an increase of expenditure of 

$1,473 28 ; 

The cost of gas, fluid, lighting and repairs of Lamps, show a 
reduction of $2,917 88 ; 

For support of Poor there is a reduction of $1,304 12 ; 

For Highways, Bridges, and Sidewalks there is a reduction of 
$8,710 84.

In 1555, the Surveyors of Highways ordered edge-stones to be 
placed m front of the estates of several abutters, under the author- 
ity of an act of the Legislature, entitled " An Act to regulate the 
Sidewalks in the City of Eoxbury," approved March 26, 1855, 
at a cost of $2,167 41. There has been received from sundry 
abutters, since January 1st, of the present year, the sum of 
$342 52, and the remaining bills have been placed in the hands 
of the City Solicitor for collection. 

According to the Report of last year, the cost of widening 
Washington Street, northerly side, was $22,617 57. Expended 
during the year $445 12. Making the total cost $23,162 69. 
There is but one claim remaining unadjusted. For widening 
Washington, corner of Eustis Street, the cost heretofore was 
$3,817 96. Expended during the year $87 43. Making the 
total cost $3,905 49. All the claims upon the City for this im- 
provement have been liquidated. 

The cost of widening Ruggles Street was $2,148 18. Two 
claims remain unadjusted. 

There was appropriated $1,100 00 for constructing a drain in 
Cabot Street, and $1,071 34 of the same has been expended. 
There has been received $66 50 from abutters, and a much 
larger amount may be expected the coming year from others, who 
Avill doubtless avail themselves of the privilege of draining their 
estates into this main. 

The cost of Reservoirs for the year, was $258 56. This 
expenditure was entirely for repairs. Should the pipes of the 
Aqueduct Company be laid through our streets the coming season, 
an opportunity will be offered to obtain a better supply of water 
from Hydrants, which will obviate the necessity of constructing 
any more Reservoirs, except in such locahties as can be supplied 
in no other manner. 

By law, the proceeds of sales of lots or rights of burial in the 
Cemetery at Forest Hills, are yearly paid into the City Treasury, 
and kept separate from any other funds of the city, and subject 
to the order of the Commissioners, to be applied by them in the 
manner provided by law. For full details concerning the Ceme- 



tery, reference mny be made to the Annual Report of the Com- 
missioners, which is appended. 

The amomit received into the Treasury from Feb- 
ruary 1, 1856, to Feb. 1, 1857, from sundry 
persons, for sales and grading lots, including 
balance on hand, was $23,420 20 

And the amount paid upon the drafts or orders of 

the Commissioners for the same period, was . 20,962 75 



Leaving a balance in the Treasury, Feb. 1, 1857, of $2,457 45 

The Cemetery Debt, Feb. 1, 1856, was . . $24,000 00 
Of which there has been paid during the year, . 3,000 00 

Reducing the debt to . . $21,000 00

islature : — 

Section 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 
City, and subject to the order of said Commissioners, and such proceeds shall be de- 
voted to the liquidation of the debt incurred in the purchase of the land for said Ceme- 
tery, and to the improvement and embellishment thereof, as aforesaid, under the direc- 
tion of said board of Commissioners. And no other moneys shall be appropriated from

REPORT 



OVERSEEES OE THE POOE 



KoxBURY, March 1, 1857. 

The Overseers of the Poor of the City of Roxbury, respectfully 
submit their Annual Report for the past current year. 

The Receipts for the Support of Poor from February 1, 1856, to 
February 1, 1857, were as follows : 

Balance undrawn Feb. 1, 1856 . . $1,584 39 
Received of Ezra Young for sale of

It will be seen by the accompanying Reports of the Superin- 
tendent and Physician of the Ahnshouse, that the condition of 
that estabhshment is highly satisfactory. Thx) number of inmates 
during the past year has not been greater than the year previous. 
The health of the inmates has been well provided for, only three 
deaths having occurred during the year. Every proper attention 
has been given to the wants and comfort of those of our citizens, 
who, when reduced to poverty through misfortune or sickness, 
have a claim upon the city for rehef or support, which cannot be 
and should not be denied. 

The officers connected with the Almshouse establishment have 
performed their duties faithfully and well, and to the entire satis- 
faction of the Board. 

The expenses of the whole establishment for the support of the 
poor, form a considerable item in the City Expenditures, — but 
not greater than can reasonably be expected in a city as popu- 
lous as our own, and where, owing to a large foreign population, 
there is, through a considerable portion of the year, a pressure 
and necessity for a very considerable amount of outside relief, a 
mode of rendering assistance, which, while Avisdom dictates close 
investigation and careful discrimination of cases, humanity forbids 
us to withhold. 

JOHN S. SLEEPER, 
Chairman of Overseers of the Poor.

REPORT 



PHYSICIAN TO THE ALMSHOUSE 



To the Board of Overseers of the Poor for the City of Roxhury : 

Gentlemen, — The inmates of the Almshouse the past year 
have been comparatively exempt from diseases of an acute char- 
acter : although nearly all of them have at different times required 
medical treatment, more or less protracted. The inroads upon 
the physical powers of the inmates, produced by deprivation of the 
comforts and necessaries of life, and other causes, previous to 
admission to the house, peculiarly predispose them to forms of 
disease, chronic and lingering in their nature. During the year 
there have been three deaths in the house — one of convulsions, a 
child, and two of consumption. One of the cases of consumption, 
a female, was not properly an inmate of the house, but was 
brought there only a day or two before her death. There has 
been one birth in the house. One case of small pox, (a State 
charge) and two of varioloid, have been the only cases of disease 
of this character during the year. Neither of these patients were 
inmates of the house. 

The inmates have evinced a willingness to conform to such di- 
rections as have been found necessary either to preserve health, 
or, if sick, to assist in restoring them to their usual state of health. 
The unremitting kindness and attention to the welfare and com- 
fort of the inmates, both in health and sickness, of the Superin- 
tendent and his wife, cannot be commended too highly. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Joseph H. Streeter, 

Physician to the Almshouse. 

Boxbury^ January 2>lst, 1857. 



REPORT 



CHIEF ENGINEER OF THE FIRE DEPARTMENT, 



RoxBURY, February 2, 1857. 

To the Honorable Mayor ^ Aldermen and Common Council : 

The sixth section of Ordinance No. 34, regulating the Fire 
Department, requires the Chief Engineer to transmit annually, 
and oftener if required, to your Honorable Body, a correct state- 
ment of the condition of the Fire Department. 

In accordance with the provisions of the ordinance, I submit to 
you my Annual Report, from February 1, 1856 to February 1, 
1857, showing the number of Fires and Alarms in each month, 
with the loss and insurance on the same, — names of the Board of 
Engineers, — INIembers of the Department, with their ages and 
residence, — pay of the same, — condition of Houses and Apparatus, 
— list of Reservoirs and Hydrants, as also the Rules and Regula- 
tions of the Department. 

The Department have been called out the past year, 

From actual fires within the city ... 33 times. 

" false alarms ...... 26 "

In consequence of the large number of alarms of fire out of 
the city, the Board of Engineers, immediately on their organ- 
ization, passed a vote that no bell on any engine house should be 
rung for an alarm of fire out of the city, unless by order of an 
engineer. Every precaution was used by the Board, as well as by 
the City INIarshal and his officers, to enforce this order. One 
person, a member of the Department, was discharged for violating 
the above regulation. When the services of the Department are 
required by any of our neighbors, they are always rendered, and 
the members of the Department rally as promptly to render our 
neighbors assistance as they do our city. The result of the en- 
forcement of this rule respecting alarms of fire out of the city, is 
highly satisfactory. Last year, from May 1 to January 31, the 
Department was called out tJdrty times for fires and alarms out of 
the city ; while this year, in the same time, they have been called 
out but eight times, and at three of those alarms the Department 
were sent for. 

On assuming the duties of Chief Engineer in May last, I was 
impressed with the belief that the ordinary expenses for the year 
would be small — or at least would be kept within the limits of the 
appropriation ; but the result has been otherwise. The several 
Engine, Hose, and Hook and Ladder Carriages have been thor- 
oughly repaired, and painted when found necessary. One bill of 
repairs, amounting to some four hundred dollars, contracted pre- 
vious to my entering upon the duties of this office, is charged, in 
the expenses of the Department, the present year. 

The details of repairs and expenses briefly have been as follows : 
Engine No. 1, was sent to Waterford, New York, and new 
brakes substituted for the old ones, (which render the engine 
more portable and much lighter,) agreeably to the recommenda- 
tion of a former Board of Engineers, and with the consent of the 
Committee on the Fire Department ; at the same time all neces- 
sary repairs were made to the engine. No repairs have been 
made upon the house. 

Engine No. 2, mahciously damaged by a person not connected 
with the Department, has been thoroughly repaired and painted. 
The house is in good order, and no repairs were required. 



71 

Engine No. 3, kept as a relief engine, has had new Suction 
Hose, and is in good order. 

Engine No. 6, has been thoroughly repaired and painted, and 
is in good order. These repairs were ordered by my predecessor. 
The house has been partly new silled, and new floors have been 
laid in the lower story. This story has been painted. A new 
Hose Tower ha;s been erected the past year ; and a new floor in 
the Steward's room is required. 

Engine No. 7 has been thoroughly repaired, and partially 
painted. The interior of the house has been painted. A Hose 
Tower has been added to the house. 

Hydrant Carriage has been repaired and painted. 

Hook and Ladder Carriage has also been repaired, as also the 
ladders, axes, &c. belonging to the same. Some slight repairs 
have been made to the house. 

Two hundred feet of new Leading Hose have been purchased for 
the use of the Department. 

Two Reservoirs, built under the direction of a former City Gov- 
ernment, — one on Smith Street, and one at the corner of Green- 
ville and Winthrop Streets, — at an expense of some $1,600, were 
found to be defective and of no service. They have since been 
repaired and filled, at an expense of $300, and are noAV in good 
order. 

The Engines and Apparatus of the Department are now all in 
good order ; and unless some unforeseen accident should occur, 
the bills for repairs the coming year will, doubtless, be compara- 
tively small. The houses of Engines ISTos. 1 and 7, Hook and 
Ladder house, with the house of the Hydrant Co., require paint- 
ing outside. The house of Engine No. 1, and Hook and Ladder 
Co., will require new floors and other repairs the coming Spring. 

The house occupied by the Hook and Ladder Co. is entirely 
unfitted for the deposite of the carriage, it being too short, and in 
every way inconvenient, and requiring double labor of the Stew- 
ard to take the proper care of the same. I would most respect- 
fully recommend that a one-story building be erected for the 
proper accommodation of this important part of our apparatus. 

The house occupied by Hydrant Co., No. 1, from its being sit- 
uated over the water, is very damp and cold, and unfitted for the 
purpose for which it is used. 

Two Reservoirs were recommended to be built by the Board of 
Engineers the past year, — one at or near Sudbury Street, and 
one on the Point, in the vicinity of Curtis's planing mill ; but, 
owing to the ground not being adapted for that purpose, in one 
case, and the demands of owners and abutters in the other, neither 
of them has been built. 



72 

Application was made to the Water Board of the City of Boa- 
ton, by a committee of the Board of Aldermen, for permission to 
insert one or more hydrants on Tremont Street, between Franklin 
Place and Buggies Street; but the request was not granted. 
They were willing, however, to lay a service pipe from Franklin 
Place to Buggies Street — a distance of about six hundred feet — 
sufficient for two hydrants, which Avould be of much more service 
to the city than reservoirs. I would recommend your early atten- 
tion to this source of obtaining water in that locality. One new 
hydrant has been inserted (of great capacity) on Tremont Street, 
at the corner of Texas Avenue, and is of much importance in that 
vicinity. 

The large number of wooden buildings erected, and being 
erected yearly, in our city, increases the danger of fire. There 
are some localities where a scarcity of water exists, and where, 
if a fire should occui', the efforts of the Department would be of 
httle avail. The importance of having a better supply of water, 
either in reservoirs or from hydrants, cannot be over estimated. 
Our present number of reservoirs and hydrants is, in my judg- 
ment, inadequate to the wants of the city. 

It is understood that the Jamaica Pond, situated within the 
limits of West Boxbury, with the rights and franchise of the 
Aqueduct Company, has been purchased by some of our citizens, 
for the purpose of supplying the lower part of the city with pure 
water. I would respectfully dire.ct your attention to the impor- 
tance of locating a large number of hydrants along the line of the 
pipes in the several streets through which they may be laid. The 
proprietors of the Pond, I am informed, have expressed a willing- 
ness to meet the- city in a liberal spirit, for furnishing an ample 
supply of water for the extinguishment of fires. The expense of 
inserting hydrants is trifling, compared with the cost of the con- 
struction of reservoirs, and their superiority over them in affording 
an ever-ready supply, is so clear to the minds of every one, that 
it needs no demonstration. The proprietors kindly offered the use 
of the pipes for the Department, until the Spring, free of charge ; 
but as it is earnestly hoped that some permanent arrangement 
will be made with them as soon as possible, I deemed it unneces- 
sary to communicate their offer, or to recommend any action on 
the subject. 

The condition of the Department was never better Aan at the 
present time. Harmony prevails among all its members, good 
order, a prompt response to every call of the bell, and a cheerful 
comphance Avith all the rules and regulations of the Department. 
They very justly merit the approbation of the Government and of 
the citizens. 



73 

I have now presented every thing to your consideration, that I 
regard of importance to the welfare of the Department, as well as 
such suggestions as, in my judgment, will tend to afford a greater 
security from fire to our city. If, by the constant devotion of my 
best endeavors to discharge my duties, I have merited your ap- 
probation, I shall feel that the labor, time, and sacrifice of per- 
sonal comfort it has caused me, have not been thrown aAvay. 
You entrusted me with responsible duties, and my proudest boast 
. will be, to know that I have not disappointed your expectations, 
or suffered a trust, involving great responsibilities and of such 
importance to the future welfare of our city, to have failed in my 
hands. To the Committee on the Fire Department, who have 
sustained me in the discharge of my duties and promptly acted 
upon my communications, I would tender my thanks. To the 
City Marshal and his assistants, who have always been prompt in 
the discharge of their duties while acting as Fire Police, I would 
also tender my thanks. To the Board of Engineers, who have 
been with me on all occasions, I would express my obligations to 
them, and am proud to be able in this public manner, to bear 
testimony to the faithful and efiicient manner in which they have 
performed their duties. During the term of office yet remaining 
to me, no effort of mine shall be wanting to make the Department 
worthy the confidence the public repose in it. 

Respectfully submitted. 

SAMUEL F. TRAIN, 

Ohief Engineer.

Two hundred and fifty-two persons have been provided with 
lodgings during the year. 

The Police Department the past year has consisted of myself 
and eight Assistants, and two Night -Watchmen, Four of the 
Assistant Marshals are on duty every night, as watchmen ; mak- 
ing the whole force on duty at night, six men. The City is now 
divided into two sections, — three men to each section. I would 
suggest the propriety of having the City divided into four sections, 
and an increase of two night watchmen to the present force, 
thereby rendering more efficient service to the inhabitants. The 
territory is so large, and the distance to be travelled by the 
watchmen so great, that they cannot go over the ground as often 
as the public safety seems to demand, with the present force. 
At times, it is impossible for them to visit all parts of the city during 
the night, in consequence of their being confined to certain locali- 
ties requiring their constant attendance, thereby leaving large 
and valuable portions of the City unprotected. 

The present police have acted as Truant Officers. They have 
been called many times by the teachers of our pubUc schools to 
look after truants and absentees from school, which duty has been 
strictly attended to, with good results. 

Much service has been rendered by the police that does not 
appear upon record, — such as abating nuisances, attending fires, 
&c., which has taken much time and labor, the most of which has 
been done without any extra expense to the City. 

During the past summer there were appointed six persons, who 
acted as special poUce on Sundays during the fruit season, for the 
protection of orchards, gardens, &c., in the rural parts of the 
11 



82 

City. From the small number of complaints from tlie inhabitants 
of the Citj, and the great number of depredations in the adjoin- 
ing towns, Ave have good reason to believe that the amount paid 
for their services -was not misappUed. 

The vigilance of the police has, in a measure, been able to 
secure the observance of the law relative to the Lord's day, as far 
as pertains to the keeping open of shops and places of resort for 
idle and dissolute persons. 

In regard to arrests, you will notice that a large proportion 
were for the crime of drunkenness. As a preventive, I have 
none within my reach. It is a well-known fact, that in almost 
every shop, and many places used as dwellings, intoxicating li- 
quors are kept for sale ; but they are managed in such a manner 
that prosecutions cannot avail much in suppressing the traffic. 
The class of persons frequenting such places are those whose tes- 
timony in a Court of Justice would not be reliable. 

There is another class of crimes to which I wish to call your 
attention, viz., " Larcenies^ Many of the arrests made for the 
crime of larceny, have been committed by boys from ten to six- 
teen years of age; the 'most of which have been "petty lar- 
cenies" of old junk, consisting of old iron, lead, brass and copper, 
taken mostly from unoccupied buildings, and which is encouraged 
by a certain class of persons, who go about the City collecting 
every thing in the shape of junh ; and, I am sorry to say, not 
in violation of any Ordinance of this City regulating the same. 

The duties of the police, in trying to enforce the Ordinance 
relative to the Sanitary Regulations of the City, are much in- 
creased by the insufficient accommodations for drainage. Many 
of the dwelling-houses located on the low grounds are not pro- 
vided with drains or cesspools, thereby obliging the occupants to 
throw upon the surface of the ground all the waste water which 
should be carried away by drains, much of which finds its way 
into the streets, lanes, &c., in direct violation of the Ordinance 
pertaining thereto. 

There are certain nuisances existing in the City, to which the 
attention of the Board of Health has been frequently called, one 
of which is now under judicial investigation, viz., the " Chemical 
Works ;" another — " Ward's" — if not as injurious to health, 
is equally as annoying to the inhabitants residing within the 
vicinity, from the frequent emanation of putrid and foul air, which 
arises from the decomposed animal substances deposited on and 
about the premises. 

In submitting this report, I wish to notice the efficient and 
gentlemanly manner in which the members of the police have dis- 



83 

charged their duty during the past year, which I think has been 
done in a manner highly creditable to themselves, and to the gen- 
eral satisfaction of the public. 

I would here tender my acknowledgments for the confidence 
reposed in me, by placing me in the office I now hold, and the 
repeated acts of kindness during the past year. 

Respectfully submitted. 

A. S. PARKER, 



Roxhury, April 6, 1857. 



City Marshal. 



In Board of Aldermen, April 6, 1857. 

Referred to the Committee on Accounts, with instructions to cause such 
parts to be printed as they deem expedient with the Annual Report of 
Receipts and Expenditures of the City. 

Sent down for concurrence.

REPORT 

OF THE 

COMMISSIOl^EES 

OP 

FOREST HILLS CEMETERY. 



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 

:ninth annual eeport. 

This annual record which it devolves upon the Commissioners 
to make in relation to Forest Hills, though in its detail of facts 
not very unlike those which have preceded it, is still a record of 
progress in the important work committed to their supervision. 

With no abatement of interest or energy, the work of beautify- 
ing and fitting the grounds for the sacred purpose to which they 
are consecrated, has been steadily prosecuted in all its depart 
ments through another year. And in the progress of this work, 
nothing is made more evident, aside from the exceeding natural 
beauty of the locality and its peculiar fitness for the high and 
sacred ends to which it is appropriated, than the existing and 
growing necessity for such a provision to meet the public senti- 
ment as well as the wants of the community. 

Labor. About thirty-five men have been employed in the 
various departments of labor upon the grounds for nine months of 
the year, and a less number the remaining three. 

Lots Prepared. During the year one hundred lots have been 
graded and sodded, the outline defined by stone posts and the 
borders set with trees and shrubs. 

Tombs. Three family tombs have been constructed. 

Avenues and Paths. The loam has been removed from about 
1600 feet of Avenues, and from about 850 feet of Paths, which 



85 

have been relaid with stone and gravel in the same manner as 
heretofore. 

Lake Hibiscus. To prevent the possibihty of accident, a 
fence has been constructed on the southerly side of Lake Hibis- 
cus, consisting of stone posts connected by straight iron bars. 
The grounds also in the same vicinity, on the borders of the Lake, 
have been graded and sodded, and planted with trees. 

Monuments, &c. Besides monumental scrolls and slabs of 
various forms, many of them exceedingly neat and tasteful, there 
have been erected by the proprietors of lots, thirty monuments, 
costing from $150 to $1200 each. 

Fences. Fifty lots have been enclosed by iron fences. 

Interments. The number of interments during the year in 
private lots and in the Field of Machpelah has been 475. 

Lots Sold. One hundred and one lots averaging 291f feet 
each have been sold during the year. And in the Field of Mach- 
pelah 142 graves, — all that remained unsold at the commence- 
ment of the year, — have been disposed of. 

"Field of Ephron." It having become apparent that the 
unsold graves in the Field of Machpelah would not probably more 
than supply the demand for the year, the Commissioners, early in 
the season, designated a lot in the northerly part of the Cemetery 
to be prepared for the same purpose. Entering the Cemetery by 
the Egyptian Gateway, this lot is on the right. It is to be trenched 
and graded for separate graves to accommodate such persons as 
may not wish to purchase a whole lot. To this place the Commis- 
sioners have given the name " Field of Ephron." See Gen. 23 : 17. 
Here the grounds have already been prepared for 200 graves, 
which are now ready for sale. The border on the northerly side 
has been graded, leaving the young growth of trees with which it 
was studded, and when the whole shall have been graded and the 
borders adorned with trees and shrubs according to the present 
design, it will become a beautiful and attractive portion of the 
Cemetery. In this " Field of Ephron" there will be space for 
not less than 1200 graves. 

Lots Finished. There are thirty-one lots now graded and 
finished with stone posts and sodding, which are ready for sale. 
Fifty-one other lots are trenched and nearly completed, which 
will be finished early in the spring to meet the demand for the 
coming year. 

The Commissioners have paid, during the year, $3000 of the 
principal of the notes given by the City for the purchase of land 
for the Cemetery, which added to the sum of 12,894 67, before 
paid, amounts to $15,894 67. The present debt for Cemetery 
grounds is $21,000.

This statement shows that though our enterprise is compara- 
tively in its infancy, a large amount of labor has already been 
bestowed upon Forest Hills. But it is not labor unappreciated. 
The public sentiment of the community approves the outlay, and 
the heart honors the results of it, as an offering fit and sacred to 
its deepest affection. It matters little comparatively to the de- 
parted, what disposition Ave may make of the dust they have left be- 
hind them, whether in the- repulsive vault or amidst living fragrant 
flowers we lay it down to rest. It is not for the dead with any 
hope of benefitting or making more peaceful their last sleep, that 
we throw around the sepulchre the beauty and the fragrance of 
Forest Hills ; but for the living, — as the offering of a cherished 



and undying affection, -which would linger still at the sepulchre, 
as the two Marys by that new tomb in Joseph's garden, with liv- 
ing memories of the departed rendered pleasant and not repulsive 
by surrounding emblems of a resurrection and a life to come. 
And Forest Hills is become an impressive preacher of great and 
salutary truths. Nine years have gathered to its quiet bosom the 
loved and the honored from many of our households. The aged and 
the young alike sleep in its shady retreats. And the past is the mir- 
ror to the future. We prepare a place for the loved and the hon- 
ored whose presence is yet the light and the joy of our homes ; — 
a place, however, whose surroundings shall all teach us that the 
grave is not our home, and shall point significantly to that land 
where is the " tree of life," and where " there shall be no more 
death, neither sorrow nor crying, neither shall there be any more 
pain; for the former things are passed away."

AN AC T 

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

Roxbury. 
Be it enacted hy the Senate and House of Representatives, in Gene- 
ral Court assembled, and hy 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, donation or bequest of prop- 
erty, upon trust, to apply the same, or the income thereof, for the im- 
provement 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, 
consistent 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, preser- 
vation 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 condi- 
tions as they may establish, binding themselves and their successors to 
preserve and keep in repair said lot forever, or for such period as may 
be agreed upon. 

Sect. 2. Any sums of money, so received by said commissioners, 
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 j)rovision is made by the terms of any such grant, dona- 
tion or bequest) , shall be made under the charge of said city treasurer,
