The town of Roxbury, founded soon after Boston, did much work towards the close of the Seventeenth Century in starting new colonies, and among many was one, Woodstock, Connecticut, which on the seventh of last September celebrated its two hundredth birthday. The above is an historical sketch delivered on that day to the people, and traces the town's history to the present day.
