    • "Relics are less frequently found among the representatives of ancient families on the Cape than might be expected, but we recollect having seen with in a few years, at the house of Mrs. Peter Thacher, a cradle about 200 years old, ingeniously made of oak by Col. John Thacher, a father of 21 children, and also the scarlet blanket in which the infant of Mr. Antony Thacher was wrapped when drowned by the wreck at Thacher Island near Newburyport, in 1635. The cradle and blanket above referred to were left by will to Peter Thacher of Hyannis, MA., are by him were disposed to Mr. "Henry C. Thacher* of Yarmouth, MA."
