Inhaltsangabe: Excerpt from The History of the Town of Lyndeborough, New Hampshire, 1735-1905
It is said that many years ago some of our most gifted and intelligent citizens felt that the history of Lyndeborough ought to be written while aged men and women were still living whose recollection reached back to the later days of many of the pioneers. Had it been commenced then, doubtless many things of great interest would have been preserved for us which are now either entirely lost, or shrouded in impenetrable haze. The reasons which then prevented are not now clearly manifest. But the thing was not done, and the years rolled on and carried away the fathers and mothers, revered repositories of facts and traditions which would undoubtedly have both enlivened and enriched the pages of our present volume.
The interest in having a history was, however, revived in the March meeting of 1889. The town then voted to celebrate its One Hundred and Fiftieth Anniversary, and on the same day, also, voted to appropriate two hundred dollars towards preparing and publishing its history. Messrs. D. C. Grant, J. H. Goodrich, J. A. Woodward, L. Cram, and E. C. Curtis were chosen as the History Committee. The next year three hundred dollars were added to the former appropriation; and a year later, on motion of Hon. B. G. Herrick, the town instructed its committee "to proceed with the work as fast as consistent with getting up a good history." Thus an earnest interest in obtaining a history became manifest.
About that time, Rev. Frank G. Clark published his "Historical Address," prepared for the 150th anniversary. It was entitled "Salem-Canada-Lyndeborough," and almost deserved to be called a "history in miniature." This he kindly and generously permitted to be freely used as an aid in compiling the more extended work; and for the very valuable aid thus extended the compilers unite in expressing to him most hearty and unfeigned thanks. Readers will learn from the frequent citation from this address as authority how much they are indebted to Rev. F. G. Clark.
