  <mods:abstract>This 1685 quitclaim deed formalized the transfer of the peninsula that became the town of Boston from the native Massachuset Indians to the English colonists. Charles Greely Loring exhibited the deed at the Massachusetts Historical Society in 1879 and several nineteenth-century histories of Boston refer to it. Loring's children donated the deed to the Historical Society in 1904. Image of page 1 depicts entire page; image of page 2 depicts detail area showing endorsement</mods:abstract>
