We have introduced some proceedings of town meetings, as we thought it would be desirable to know how business was done in the early days. Of the town. Our plan has been to group the facts and statistics into distinct chapters, as much as possible, so as to improve somewhat the plan of local histories prepared by others which generally give but a continuous detail of facts.
The department of Family Sketches is more imperfect than any other, as it was impossible to get the history of a good many of the early settlers, no descendants of whom are now living in town, and consequently no trace whatever could be found of them.
The Map in locating every inhabitant, stream, and road will be invaluable in connection with the history.
Perhaps there are others who could or will at some future day, present a history of the town in better form, but imperfect as it is we have sought to give it a truthful expression. It has not been our aim to acquire a literary reputation, of which we shall claim no merit. With these views we have been induced to write and publish the work, which is respectfully dedicated to the people of Danby.
