Embraces Introductory Remarks - Notices of the Early Voyages and Discoveries in and about our territory - An account of the Indians found here, with brief Biographical Sketches of some of the more prominent - Topographical and general Descriptions, with notices of Natural History and Phenomena - Facts concerning the Business Enterprises and Employments of the Settlers, and their Religious Character, Manners, and peculiar Customs.
Carries forward our History, year by year, in the form of Annals, giving all important events under the appropriate dates, from the time of the first settlement, in 1629, to the year 1865 - interspersed with brief notices of prominent individuals, and other matters deemed pertinent.
Contains Biographical Sketches of various Natives of Lynn who from position, endowments or acts seemed entitled to some special notice.
Embraces various Tables - Lists of Public Officers, Names of Early Settlers, Religious Societies and Ministers, Newspapers and Editors, etc. - together with Statistical Summaries.
Contains brief Concluding Remarks, alluding especially to the progress of Lynn during the last twenty years and closing with acknowledgments for the friendly assistance received during the progress of the work.
Contains all the Surnames in the book, a1fabetically arranged in connection with the subjects. Names are so naturally connected in the mind with events that it is thought the arrangement will prove highly useful. A full index is to a work of this kind of the first importance. Indeed a good index is a valuable addition to any work. And the object of the threat of Lord Campbell to introduce a bill into the British Parliament making it penal to issue a book without an index, should be better appreciated by book makers than seems generally to be the case.
