INTRODUCTORY NOTE
BY order of the City Council the following record is printed of the proceedings by the city of Cambridge in
commemorating her two hundred and fiftieth birthday, - a record, it is hoped, that will be worthy of a permanent place beside the other volumes that picture the proud memories of this famous city. The celebration, five years ago, of the one hundredth anniversary of Washington's taking command of the Continental army, revived, and has kept fresh in the public mind, the memorable events that associate Cambridge with the Revolution ; but in the incidents of her earlier days, - the struggles and triumphs of her founders, - people had taken but little interest. No anniversary day of the settlement had ever been publicly observed. It seemed proper, therefore, upon the quarter-millennial of her existence, to celebrate the city's beginning, and, without singling out for especial emphasis her Revolutionary renown, to make a retrospect of her entire career. The first publicly to call attention to the desirability of improving the opportunity thus presented was Alderman Moses G. Howe. As early as June 2, 1880, he introduced the subject to the Board of Aldermen, and advocated some form of celebration. His suggestions were approved by the other members of the Board, and the same evening an order was adopted for the appointment of a, joint special committee, consisting of the Mayor, the President of the Common Council, two Aldermen, and three Councilmen, to consider in what manner the anniversary should be commemorated.
