PREFACE.

THE AMERICAN HISTORICAL RECORD was begun with the intention of supplying a want which seemed to exist in the literature of our country. The Editor and Publishers entered upon their tasks with a belief that these efforts, if found to be usefully

employed, would be seconded by their countrymen, and they have not been disap

pointed.

The first volume has closed with a steadily increasing circulation, which gives pro

mise of the permanent establishment of the publication among the periodical issues

from the American press. We point with satisfaction to the varied contents of this

Volume, as an evidence that it is already a favorite among historical readers and

inquirers.

Its list of contributors (which is continually increasing) numbers some of

the brightest minds of our country; and we here tender to them all, our grateful

thanks for their generous aid, with the expression of a hope that the same practical

interest which they have hitherto taken in our work, will be continued in the future.

We shall hope, thereby, to make the RECORD a welcome visitor to the intelligent

households of our land.
