PREFACE. 



The following index embraces all the regular city documents which 
have been numbered and bound together at the end of each year, from 
1834 to 1908, inclusive. They are arranged in alphabetical and chrono- 
logical order. Previous to 1834 very few documents were printed, and, 
as they were not numbered nor bound together, it would probably be 
impossible to make a complete collection at this time. The first Mayor's 
Address which appears among the regular documents is Samuel A. Eliot's, 
delivered at the inauguration of the government of 1838. The first 
Fourth of July Oration is Jonathan Chapman's, delivered in 1837. The 
Auditor's ''Twenty-second Annual Report" is contained in the volume 
for 1834, and the list of reports is complete from that date. The Munic- 
ipal Register begins with the year 1841. The Annual Report of the City 
Marshal [see Police and Watch] was printed in 1834. The next printed 
report does not appear until 1849. From that date the list is complete. 
Reports on the correctional and reformatory institutions are nearly com- 
plete from 1834 to the present time. The first annual report of the 
Superintendent of the Lunatic Hospital was printed in 1840. First 
among the numerous documents relating to the introduction and distri- 
bution of water is Loammi Baldwin's report, made in 1834. The only 
report of any value upon the question of water supply, made previous to 
that date, was Professor Daniel Treadwell's, in 1825. Mr. Nathaniel 
J. Bradlee's history of the waterworks, printed for the use of the city 
government in 1868, and Mr. Desmond FitzGerald's supplementary 
history, printed in 1876, are not included among the numbered documents. 

The changes that have been made in departmental designations have 
necessitated some changes in topics which are generally indicated in foot- 
notes and cross references. 

The appendix to this volume contains a list of city publications not 
included among the numbered documents. The list is classified and 
arranged in chronological order, and copies of most of these publications 
may be found at the Public Library.

have been published in some newspaper and from the t3^pe a certain num-

pages. Size about 5^ by 34 inches. 
[In this year, as noted, the City Council of each year was printed collectively.] 

1851. Same title. Eastburn. 164 pages. 

The size of the page was increased to about 6^ by 3h inches; 
since that date the Register has maintained about the same size 
page and a general uniformity of subject matter. 

Note. — The " Rules and Orders of the Common Council " were first published 
in 1822, and were continued annually till 1S41, when the title was changed to "Munici- 
pal Register. " I will therefore follow out to the end the bibliography of the Register. 
The list of members of the City Council for each year was given; and in 1843, for the 
first time, a consolidated list was inserted, giving all the members from 1822. This 
list, with the necessary changes, was printed in 1845, 1846, 184S and 1849, the members 
from each ward being grouped together. In 1850, for the first time, the City Council 
for each year was printed collectively, in the style which has since been followed. 

In 1843 a most inexplicable confusion was made in respect to Wards 8 and 9. The 
list puts all of the members from Ward 8 who served prior to 1839 (when there was a 
new division into wards) under Ward 9, and those from Ward 9 under the head of 
Ward 8, and this error for the years 1822-1838 was continued in the ]\Iunicipal Register 
through the issue for 1890. It has been corrected in the tables given in the " Catalogue " 
printed in 1891 and noticed hereafter. I cannot explain this idea, because although 
Wards 8 and 9 did in 1843, in a measure, exchange numbers, yet the boundaries of the 
new wards varied quite essentially from those formerly. existing. 

These lists were carefully revised in 1890 by C. W. Ernst, Esq., and again by Fred- 
erick E. Goodrich, Esq., and quite a number of errors were corrected. The principal 
corrections to be made in the Registers as issued are, in 1827, Ward 4, Quincy Tufts 
to be substituted for William R. P. Washburn; in 1835, Joseph H. Hay ward to be adtled 
as an alderman; in 1837, Ward 6, George W. Bazin to be struck out and Jonathan 
Chapman inserted; in 1839, Thomas Richardson to be removed from the aldermen and 
Samuel Quincy inserted, and in Ward 7, Elbridge G. Austin to be added; in 1843 the 
contested seats in Ward 1 are shown; in 1844, Ward 3, John Snelling to be dropped 
and James Boynton substituted; and in 1863, Ward 3, Nicholas J. Bean added. 



The lists of the City Councils of Roxl)ury and Charlestown were first added to 
the Boston Municipal Register in 1888. The city of Roxbury pulMished its Register 
annually, the first being for 1846-47, then 47-48, 48-49, 49-50, the Council lieing organ- 
ized on the first Monday in April. February 12, 1850, an act was passed changing the 



INDEX TO CITY DOCUMENTS. 153 

date to the first Monday in January, and the members for 1850 only held office for 
nine months. A new Register was printed for 1850, and thereafter in every year 
including 1867, when Roxbury was annexed to Boston. The Registers for 1855 and 
1858 contain a view of the birthplace of Warren; that for 1859 has a portrait of Warren; 
that of 1860 a portrait of Gen. Henry A. S. Dearborn, the second mayor; and that of 
1861 a portrait of Hon. Samuel Walker. 



The city of Charlestown seems to have issued comparatively few editions of its 
Register. I have seen or have been informed of "The Rules and Orders of the City 
Council," etc., for 1847, 84 pages; the "Municipal Register" for 1848, 113 pages; and 
the Municipal Register for 1849, 18 pages (apparently only a supplement). In 1850 
(108 pages); 1851 (28 pages); 1852 (120pages); 1853 (28 pages); 1854 (16 pages); 1856 
(141 pages); 1858 (16 pages); 1859 (18 pages); 1863 (42 pages); 1864 (161 pages); and 
1870 (192 pages), the Register was issued. Those for 1850, 1852, 1856, 1868 and 1870 
contain rules, ordinances, special laws, etc.; those for 1853, 1854, 1858, 1859 and 
1863 were probably only supplements. I am informed that no other editions were 
published. The city documents were issued annually in bound volumes, the latest 
being dated in 1872. 

1822. Official papers printed for the Common Council of the City of 
Boston, comprising the Constitution of the United States, and 
the Constitution of Massachusetts, with the Amendments. City 
and police acts; act relating to the Board of Health, Over- 
seers of the Poor and fire wards, together with an act provid- 
ing for the assessment of taxes. Boston: Printed by Russell 
& Gardner. 1822. 12mo. 138 pages and 1 page index. 
[The title fully describes the book, which was, very probably, not an official 
publication, but a manual prepared by Benjamin Russell, who was a member 
of the Common Council in its first year.] 

1856. Rules and orders of the Board of Aldermen, City Council 
and Common Council of the City of Boston, together with 
a list of the members and committees of the City Council. 
Boston: Moore & Crosby, city printers, 1 Water street. 1856. 
52 pages. 
[This pamphlet, page size 6| by 3| inches, was certainly published annually 
from 1856 to 1869. In 1868 the form was changed to a much smaller page 
and has been printed annually since. For 1868 and 1889, possibly for a 
year or two longer, both editions were issued.] 

1868. Officers and members of the Board of Aldermen and Common 
Council of the City of Boston, with the standing committees. 
Boston: A. Mudge & Son, printers to the city, 34 School street.* 
1868. 23 pages. 

[This seems to be the first issue of the smaller form, but in 1873 the title reads 
as follows: "Organization of the City Government of Boston for the year 
1873. Boston: Rockwell & Churchill, city printers, etc." 32 pages. This 
form has been continued since 1875, and in some years more than one edition 
has been printed, either with or without the rules and joint rules.] 

1882. Fortieth anniversary of the election of Washington Parker Gregg 
as Clerk of the Common Council of the City of Boston. Cele- 
brated by a complimentary banquet given by past and present 
members of the Common Council, at the Hotel Vendome, 
January 7, 1882. Boston: Printed by order of the City Council. 
MDCccLxxxii. 82 pages. 
[It contains a heliotype portrait of Mr. Gregg. In 1892 the City Council 
issued a pamphlet on the proceedings on the death of Mr. Gregg.] 



154 INDEX TO CITY DOCUMENTS. 

1S91. A catalogue of the Citv Councils of Boston, 1S22-1S90; Roxbury, 
1S46-1S67; Charlestown, 1847-1873; and of the Selectmen of 
Boston, 1634-1822; also of various other town and municipal 
officers. Boston: Printed by order of the City Council. Rock- 
well & Churchill, city printers. 1891. 270 pages. 
[Prepared by W. H. "Whitmore. It contains a list of all members of the Boston 
City Council, according to the date of election, the annual lists of those 
members which were previously printed in the Register every j^ear, and a 
register of city officers and members of boards.] 

It should be noted under this head that the inaugural addresses of 
the mayors, the farewell addresses of chairmen of the aldermen, and those 
of the presidents of the Common Council are often found without the 
mark of city document. I think, however, that these editions were 
always printed from the document t3'pes, without change of text, and 
they will be foimd under the proper heading in the first part of this index.

town meeting of IMarch 5, and its adjournment (Records, pages 1"J6 and 203), and a 
committee reported, March 25, a new draft, which was accepted. This provides tliat 
"the anniversary of the Fourth Day of July, 1776 (a day ever memorable in the annals 
of this country for the Declaration of Independence), shall be constantly celebrated by 
the delivery of a public oration, in such place as the town shall determine to be most 
convenient for the pm-pose, — in which the orator shall consider the feelings, manners

TOWN DOCUMENTS. 

1822. A full and authentic report of the debates in Faneuil Hall, 
December 31, January 1 and 2, 1821-22, on changing the 
form of government of the town of Boston. Including the 
speeches of Messrs. Clough, Emmons, etc., as furnished by 
themselves.' Boston: Published by William Emmons. 1822. 
48 pages. 
[This is not an official report, but contains a lively sketch of the town meetings.] 

It was the intention of the compiler to add a section in regard to the 
reports of the departments of the city government, and the completion of 
this work was delayed on that account. The idea was reluctantly aban- 
doned for the present, although the task must be eventually performed. 
So many documents were issued with a serial number, and also without a 
number for departmental use, that the collation will be a tedious labor. 
It seems best to print the foregoing lists as a contribution, hoping that 
errors and omissions will be noted and reported. — W. H. W.
