Splendidly equipped in the local historical and gene alogical fields, Mr. Nutt methodized his work with wisest judgment, and prosecuted it with remarkable enthusiasm and industry. The results are presented in the following pages, which from first to last are his own work, with the slight exception of a very few of the biographical sketches. The illustrations were also of his providing, and he had seen much of the matter in page form before Death so unexpectedly called him away.
The publishers had maintained business relations with Mr. Nutt for many years, and their regret in parting with him is most sincere. To their editor, his passing away comes as a personal loss, through their long association, which, beginning in a business way, deepened into a feeling of personal attachment.
The gifted author, - skilled as antiquarian, genealogist and historian, - in this work has left his final tribute to the people of the famous city in Which he took a wholesome pride, and to whose traditions, history and destiny he was intensely loyal. The publishers.
