    Excerpt from Reasons, Principally of a Public Nature, Against a New Bridge From Charlestown to Boston

    [n the case of Charles River Bridge, - when the adjustment of the terms of its charter were under consideration, its location at and substitution for the ancient ferr the fact that the road over the Neck, at the Soutfi End, Winnissimet Ferry and Charles town Ferry, were the only frequented passes into Boston - that Charlestown Ferry was the only one on Charles river above Chelsea, - the position of the bridge, in relation to the eastern, northern, and west ern sections of the country; all these circumstances were resent to the minds of the General Court, and or the pro rietors of the bridge, when the char ter was frame For a period of a hundred and sixty years no additional avenues to the capital had been opened; the subject of a bridge from Boston to Charlestown, had been at times discussed more than sixty fyears, but the project as often deemed visionary, rom the depth of the water and the ra pidity of the current. It seems therefore but rea sonable to suppose, that it was fully the expecta tion of the arties that the road, by the Neck, Win nissimmet erry, and Charles river bridge, would continue for an unlimited period to be the only ave nues to Boston, from the interior. In the then state of public information, taken in connexion with the actual condition and prospects of the country, it could hardly, at least, have been conceived by any one, that a competition was likely to arise with Charles river bridge, within a term of fifty or more 'ears. By all the considerations here mentioned, the legislature was most undoubtedl in¿uenced, both in fixing the rate of the tolls and t e duration of the charter; and whether the toll on a carriage should be 8 pence or 12 pence, or the duration of the charter 40 or 100years, were questions which had a direct reference to these points.
