Charles Rivers, New England

Charles river, in Massachusetts, is the Quinobequin of the Indians. This river rises on the borders of Hopkinton and Milford, and after meandering through Bellingham, Franklin, Medway, Medfield, Sherburne, Dover, Dedham, Needham, Natick, Newton, Waltham and Watertown, it meets the tide waters, and forms a part of Boston harbor. It is navigable to Watertown, 7 miles W. from Boston.

Charles river, in R.I., has its source in Warden's pond, in South Kingston, and empties into the Pawcatuck at Westerly.
