Excerpt from Report of the Topographical Survey Commissioners of the Massachusetts and New York Boundary, 1900

A second attempt was made in 1754, on account of serious troubles over disputed ground, leading to the organization of militia companies and various encounters. A commission of four members was appointed by New York, with power to settle, agree upon, fix and ascertain the bounds; and a like commission was appointed by Massachusetts, with its powers limited to the settling of a permanent line.

At a meeting of this joint commission the New York mem bers suggested that the Connecticut river should be the di visional line, basing their claim on the letters patent granted by King Charles the Second to James, Duke of York, hear ing date March 12, 1663, and April 2, 1674. This proposi tion was rejected by the Massachusetts commissioners, who proposed a line 12 miles eastward of the Hudson river. AS neither Side would recede from its position, the commissions adjourned, leaving the question still unsettled.

In 17 67 the king referred a determination of the boundary to commissioners to be appointed by each Province. These commissioners failed to agree. The Massachusetts proposi tion to run from a point in the south line 20 miles eastward of the Hudson river to a point in the New Hampshire line also 20 miles east of the Hudson was rejected by New York, on the ground that such a line would give Massachusetts jurisdiction within 20 miles of the Hudson, measuring at right angles therefrom. A counter proposition by New York, embracing the principal of right-angle measurement, was rejected by Massachusetts, and for a second time the hope of settling the question was deferred.

In May, 1773, agents of both States met at Hartford, and after some discussion as to the choice of a line 12 miles east of the Hudson river or one 30 miles east, made a mutual indenture, compromising on a 20-mile line, and stating that the line should be run from what was known as the north western corner of the Oblong, or Connecticut Old Corner, as fixed in 1731, and parallel with the general course of the Hudson river, which was agreed to be north 21° 10' 30 east.
