Description

Excerpt from The History of Putnam County, N. Y: With an Enumeration of Its Towns, Villages, Rivers, Creeks, Lakes, Ponds, Mountains, Hills, and Geological Features; Local Traditions; And Short Biographical Sketches of Early Settlers, Etc

WE hardly know what excuse to Offer the reader, for daring to introduce our little work into his literary presence, and lay his time under an embargo for its perusal. We have not written for fame or profit. Had we done either, or both, we would have selected a different subject than the history of a little County like that of Putnam. What we have written is the result of leisure hours, which might possibly have been squandered in the pursuit Of a less worthy Object, pro ductive Of no benefit to self or community. If we have garnered up one fact that was in danger of being lost, and which is beneficial and worthy to be pre served, in a historical point Of view, we are satisfied and rewarded for our labor. That our little work is defective, no one is more thoroughly satisfied, and ready to admit it also, than our humble self. Our sources of information have been narrow and limited, and in many instances defective.
