Remarks.

It is believed that the preceding list comprises nearly all, who have, in the state of New Hampshire, attained to their hundredth year; but those between 90 and 100 being far more numerous, it would be attended with some difficulty, and require considerable time, to collect a complete list. Between the years 1735 and 1761, there died in Hampton, 23 persons of 90 years and

upwards. In Dover, between 1767 and 1786, five persons died above 90 years of age, and one of 100. In Exeter, in four years, preceding 1789, two persons died between 90 and 100 years. In Portsmouth, in 1801, two persons died, one aged 99, the other 95; in 1802, in the same place, one person died at the age of 90; another at the age of 94. In 1782, two women died in Londonderry, each at the age of 93. The oldest person who has died in the state was Mr. Lovewell, at the age of 120, who was the father of Col. Zaccheus Lovewell, mentioned in Belknap's Hist. N. H. Vol. II. The oldest now living is Mr. Samuel Welch, of Bow, who was born at Kingston in this state, September 1, 1710.

Concord, N. H. 28 October, 1822.

HUTCHINSON PAPERS.

[By direction of the Governour and Council of this Commonwealth,

the Secretary of State has deposited with the Massachusetts Historical Society a large collection of documents, publick and private, which appear to have been used by the late Thomas Hutchinson, Esquire, Governour of his Majesty's Province of Massachusetts Bay, in the coniposition of that History, which will probably continue to be the best narrative of any of the settlements on this continent. Several of these papers are printed in the collection of papers by Hutchinson, sometimes called the third volume of his History. Those here printed have been transcribed with great care by gentlemen of experience in the chirography of the different seasons of their date. In succeeding volumes other pieces may enrich our Collections. ED.]
