Excerpt from Pictures of Rhode Island in the Past, 1642-1833, by Travellers and Observers: In the Past, 1642 1833

The plan pursued by Miss Kimball has been to re print the texts exactly, copying, in cases where there are several editions of a book, from the earliest acces sible edition in which her extract is contained. The extracts are arranged in a chronological order, the date assigned to each being that of the year in which it was written rather than that in which it was published, if the two are known to differ. To each piece she has prefixed a short heading, intended to show who the author was, what was the point of view from which he looked at Rhode Island, or under what circumstances he wrote. The source whence the text is derived is scrupulously stated, for Miss Kimball has desired that the book should be, as I am sure it will be, of use and value to careful historical students, as well as a source of entertainment to those who love to read Rhode Island history with their feet on the fender.
