Description and Holding Information
House. Comm. on Rainsford Island. Act to defray expense of protecting Rainsford Island, 1835
House No. 35 A three man committee inspected Rainsford Island, and its smallpox hospital. Resolve: for defraying the expense of protecting
Rainsford Island from the ravages of the sea, 1835. $4500 appropriated to the Governor to hire an agent to supervise repairs. Report: The island was seven
miles from shore and 11 A. in extent. There were 20+ buildings on the property, a garden, and a cemetery. Some of the damage was at the agricultural
area and one house was dangerously close to the edge. The sea wall had completely failed. Given that the island had three good wells, good
buildings, excellent people, and served a real purpose, it was appropriate to try to save it. Appendix A was a detailed description of the buildings on the
island. Appendix B was a long statement of the financials of the hospital. (Digitized from a microfilm copy of title originally held by the
Massachusetts State Library).
Title:   [Report of the Committee appointed to ascertain if any, and what, repairs are necessary, for the better preservation from the ravages of the seas, of Rainsford Island in the harbor of Boston.]
