1760 Royal American Magazine, 1775, one number containing article
on making saltpetre, doubtless carefully read by the Andover
patriots, who were interested in the Phillips Powder Mill, the
first in Massachusetts to furnish powder for the Continental
cause. The Mass. Spy says on May 31, 1776, "The public
may rely on it as a fact that there has been made at the pow-
der mill in Andover, within diese six weeks past, about one
thousand pounds weight of good gunpowder per week. The
Powder Mill at Stoughton will begin to go in a few days." In
corroboration, Prof. Winthrop writes, May 23, 1 776, " Last
week I was at the powder mill in Andover. They go briskly
on and turn out, as they told me, twelve hundred pounds per
week, and shall soon turn out considerably more." This mill
was run day and night, including Sundays. See Miss Bailey's
