With such advantages in our hands, we are wholly inexcusable if we neglect to preserve authentic monuments of every memorable occurrence. Not only names, dates, and facts may be thus handed down to posterity but principles and reasonings, causes and consequences, with the manner of their operation, and their various connexions, may enter into the mass of historical information.
Our ancestors were early attentive to this important subject. Among them were men of the first abilities and improvements, who, though strug gling with all the hardships of an infant settlement, were mindful of their posterity, and careful to provide for us. Both entertainment and instruction.
