VALUABLE BEQUEST Tho Vermont Historical Society has roceived from tho oxocutors of tho es tato of Mr. Hcnry K. Klkius, an cx ccodingly vnluablo collection of early Vermont coins, papcr curronoy and othor Rovolutionary relics. This in torosting collection was bequeathed to tho society by Mr. .Elkins who was born in Peacham, and died iu Chi cago, in July, 1001. Mr. Elkins was n loyal Vormontcr and much intcrest od in tho carly history of tho State. His fatlier, Jonathau Elkins, was ono of tho first settlers of tho towu of Peacham and among tho dooumeuts contniued iu this collection is a valu ablo maiiuscript written by him relat iug to the early settlement of that towu and tho diillculties oxperieuced by tho early sottlors iu clearing tho country, nnd nlso nn acconnt of tho captivity of himself and his voyago to Euglaud uudor arrost and his expori oncos whilo confincd iu tho Plymouth mill prison, Laud's Eud, Euglaud. This manuscript cousists of soveral pages, aud among other things tells of tho fact that whilo tho American prisouers woro couflned in Englnud in tho Pymonth mill prison Dr. Benja min Fraukliu, as is woll known, ar rauged to provido each ono of tho pris onors with a small amonnt of mouoy per niouth, for tho purchaso of tho nocessities of lifo, and how, instead of usiug all tho money for such purposes, Jouathan Elkins purchased a blank book and took iustruction iu matho matics from ono of his follow prisou ers. This arithmotio ho carefully prosorvod and brought homo with him to Peacham, oxporioncing considerablo difllcnlty in hidiug it from tho ollleers 011 board ship. This book was suo cossfully coucenlcd and is now amoiig tho docuraents in this collection. Probably tho most valuablo portion of the collection consists of sovonty flvo or oighty coins, most of which woro issued duriug tho years 1783 to 1788, uudor au act of tho legislaturo passed iu Juno, 1785, authorizing Roubeu Harmon, Jr., to coiu coppor monoy. Vormont boing tho first stato to coin any monov this collection is particularly valuablo, espocially thoso coins issned in 1785, which aro now oxccedingly raro. The collectiou con tains specimons of nearly all tho types and varioties of Vormont coius, is sued in tho years 1785, 178G, 17S7, aud 17S8)aud is consequontly of grent his toricnl vnluo. Thoro nro nlso uuniorous raro pieces of Vorniout papor ourrenoy, somo of whioh aro uniquo ; also an injunction writton upon parohmont, datcd March 1800, restraining ono Borry uuder heavy peualty from proceodiug with au notion nt law against Aaron Burr, bearing tho great seal of tho court of ohancory, stato of Now York, and signed by Vnn Ingon, clork in chan cory, tho Hon. Robert 0. Livingston, Ohnnoollor, and is an iutorosting doou mont, showing tho form in which le gal papors wero issued at that timo. Tlio coins and othcr nrticlesaro con tainod in a neat mahogany caso, mado ospooially for tho purpose, nnd is ln bclled and will bo known as tho "El kins collection. " This bequest to the Vormont Histor ical Society is wlthout douht ono of tho most vnlunblo1 collcctions that it has been tho gooll fortnno of tho so ciety to recoivo fon mnny years. Tho interest thnt Mr Elkms took iu Vermont all'airs nnd ospeoially in tho oarly history of tho Stato prompted him to bring togethor this collection of coins nnd othor articles, which ho realized woro of great historical value, and it is to bo hoped thnt tho exnm. plo sot by him 'in beqnonthing it to tho sooioty may bo tho means of mak ing other pcoplo niindfnl of tho good work that this sooioty is doing in pro sorviug all rolicn or documonts in any way rolating tp tho early history of tho StatO; Wo do firat class work on short notico.
