Grave as the last, and about three feet deep: black remains of a coffin: the bones pretty entire: nineteen small glass and earthen beads, of all colours; some of them were striped, or of two colours: three pretty large amber beads: two blades of knives, a larger and a smaller. At the feet, but beyond the coffin, was an iron instrument, very much resembling a pair of modern shears, about eight or nine inches long, but it was so swollen and disguised with rust, that though I really think and believe it was a pair of shears, I cannot pretend to be positive; it came to pieces in getting out, as indeed most of the iron does: several nail-like pieces of iron. Certainly a woman's grave. They certainly were such: I have since found several more, at different places. - B.F.
