In the performance of our work we have derived assistance from many-
valuable maps and books on New England. Among the number a re¬
spectful tribute is due, particularly, to
Belknap’s History of New
Williamson’s Maine; Dwight’s Letters; Savage’s
Winthrop; Thatcher’s Plymouth; Folsom’s Saco and Biddeford;
Benton and Barret’s Statistics:—Hale’s Map of New England;
Stevens’ Rhode Island; Carrigain’s New Hampshire; and Green-
Maine :—to Worcester’s Gazetteer; Thompson’s Vermont;
Pease and Niles’ Rhode Island and Connecticut; Spofford’s Mas¬

Esq., a celebrated antiquarian and writer, and Jacob B. Moore,
Esq., of Concord, N. H., author of several valuable historical and mis¬

fully solicited.

While it is our determination to devote our time and humble talents to
render our publications worthy of general approbation; we are gratified
with the assurance of co-operation from eminent men in all parts of the
country; and we trust with confidence to receive that patronage, which
Yankees, both at home and abroad, invariably bestow on every effort
whose obvious design is
