Your example will, I trust, serve as a stimulus to others, and will thus be the means of rescuing from oblivion many interesting events in our earlier history, which are rapidly passing away with their aged depositories.
Your own work, which is well and handsomely executed, contains much valuable information, and will, I trust, secure to you a liberal public patronage, as well as the Legislative countenance to which it entitles you. -
With best wishes,
THE REv. MR. White.
WASHINGToN, District of Columbia, 16th January, 1854. We have examined the Historical Collections of Georgia, by the Rev. George White, and take pleasure in saying, that in our opinion it contains much that is interesting and useful. The work strongly commends itself to the liberal par tronage of the people of the State. Georgia has appropriated large sums of money to collect in manuscript the colonial archives, and every record that can throw light upon her early history. Mr. White, after culling over these large volumes with great labor and considerable expense to himself, has brought out in his Historical Collections, (besides a great deal of other exceedingly interesting matter) many of the most interesting and useful of these incidents and facts connected with our colonial and revolutionary history which the Legislature went to so much expense to procure.
