Miss Kiqg says Dr. Bartlett was grveni the privilege of signing after Hancock because be was the first one to favor and vote for the Declanition. I He did sign second but, appar ­ ently bewildered by the ex- ’ -Bi.ae of white space before him or, perhaps, wishing to keep two paces to the rear of Hancock, he signed too for -over to the right and so the other ^e columns of 43 sign ­ ers filled in on him, so to speak. This is all ta the records and made very intere sti ng reading, 08 read by Miss King. Dr. Bart ­ lett- was once Governor ' of Massachusetts.
