were bitten. These creatures all went mad and the roaring of the suffering cattle

* From an old letter •n-ritten in New York, I learn that Sylvan us Scott was an English-
man who was impressed on a British man-of-war, and while the ship was lying at anchor in
Portsmouth Harbor, he escaped to the shore in the night by swimming, and avoided discovery
till the ship sailed. The early Portsmouth records show that he married Sarah Moses and
had several children born to him in that town, among them Sylvanus and Samuel, who set-
tled in Scarborough, and subsequently, in 1764, removed to Machias, Me. The wife of
Col. Benjamin Foster, who went with this company, was a daughter of Sylvanus Scott, Sr.
