TRUST FUNDS IN THE HANDS OF THE OVER– SEERS OF THE POOR.

Pemberton Fund. — This fund comprises bequests and gifts made to the City of Boston from 1760 to the present time from “A. B.,” Daniel Oliver, Margaret Blackader, Alice Quick, Anne Wheelwright, Mary Ireland, Benjamin Pemberton, Martha Stevens, Mrs. H. Driscoll, William Breed, Samuel Eliot, John Coffin Jones, Mary Belknap, “A Citizen of Boston,” Anonymous, Miss Dr. Harriot K. Hunt, George Higginson, Walter E. Hawes, William B. Spooner, Rebecca A. Goddard, and Matilda Goddard. The most important, however, of the bequests was from Benjamin Pemberton, Esq., whose will was proved June 25, 1782, and for that reason his name has been given to the fund. The income of this fund is to be expended, at the discretion of the Overseers, in semiannual payments to the poor of the city.

Boylston Relief and Education Funds. –These funds were from a bequest by John Boylston, who died in London, England. His will was proved June 12, 1795. One portion of the bequest is ordered to be paid to “poor and decayed householders of the town of Boston, not under fifty years of age, persons of good character, and reduced by the acts of Providence, not by indolence, extravagance, or other vice.” The other portion to be applied to the “nurture and instruction of poor orphans and deserted children of the town of Boston until 14 years of age.”

Mason Fund. — A bequest from Jonathan Mason, by will dated July 15, 1798, interest to be paid annually “to the standing chaplain of the almshouse and workhouse, or by whatever other name called; ” interest to be added until one is appointed. The interest is now paid semi-annually towards the salary of the chaplain of the House of Industry.

Deacter Fund. — A bequest from Samuel Dexter, by will dated May 7, 1811, “for supplying with firewood or coal such poor persons, objects of charity, as are not supported in the almshouse, though sometimes relieved by the Overseers of the Poor.”

Jeffries Fund. — A bequest by David Jeffries, former Town Treasurer. Will dated January, 1786: “Income to be applied to the purchase of tea, coffee, chocolate, and sugar, for the refreshment of those persons who, in the providence of God, are or shall be reduced and obliged to take shelter in the almshouse, after having lived reputably; the Overseers of the Poor to be judges as to the persons, but always giving the preference to the pious poor.” Lucy Bullman Charity. Consists of an estate on Cambridge and Joy streets, in this city, which came into the possession of the City of Boston, in accordance with the will of Lucy Bullman, proved at Probate Court, Suffolk County, January 9, 1832, in which it is provided that, upon the death of certain persons therein named, said estate is given to the City of Boston upon the condition that the estate should never be sold, but the income used for the benefit of the poor. By a vote of the City Council, approved by the Mayor, January 4, 1873, this estate was placed in charge of the Overseers of the Poor. The David Sears Charity. —Is a fund contributed by the late Hon. David Sears for the relief of the poor, the income only to be expended “in aid and for the support of citizens or families who may have seen better days, and for charity in all its forms in such a manner as may best tend to alleviate the sufferings of human life and render the condition of the poor more comfortable.” Pierce Fuel Fund. — The legacy of Caleb Pierce to the City of Charlestown, accepted by the City Council of that city May, 1861: “Income to be expended in the purchase of fuel, to be distributed to those indigent widows whose husbands, before their decease, had resided in Charlestown at least one year, and the said widows still continuing to reside in Charlestown at the time of receiving said bounty. Income payable annually to the Trustees of the Charlestown Poor Fund.” Holton Protestant Poor Fund. A bequest by James Holton to the inhabitants of the town of Brighton: “Income to be annually expended forever in purchasing and distributing provisions among poor and indigent Protestant families in said town of Brighton, on Thanksgiving or other holidays, or just previous to such holidays, to the end that such poor Protestant families may have the means, in some degree, of enjoying such holidays in common with their fellow-citizens; and I specially direct that in such periodical distributions unmarried Protestant females who are poor and needy shall receive a liberal share of provisions, and also other articles
