INTRODUCTORY NOTE.



The present volume, edited by the publication committee of the Ill-
inois State Historical Society, is made up on a plan substantially
similar to that of the preceding volumes. It includes the larger part
of the papers read at the annual meeting in 1905; but with the in-
creasing bulk of the annual volumes, it has seemed to the committee
no longer desirable to print all the papers at length. The commit-
tee desires to lay stress on the Contribntioiis to Stdte History, as il-
lustrating that part of the society's i)ublication work which needs
further development along judicious lines. The jjolicy of the present
committee may be indicated by the following extract from a circular
letter recently issued by the chairman.

Committee on Publication.

"It is proposed to include in this and subsequent volumes the following-
kinds of historical material:

(I) "Hitherto unpublished letters and other private documentary material.
It is thoiio-ht that public documents may be best provided for in the official
publications of the State Historical Library.

(3) "Papers of a reminiscent character. These should be selected with
care, with a view to securing- material of real historic value.

(3) "Historical essays or brief monog-raphs based upon the sources and con-
taining- g-enuine contributions to knowledg-e. Such papers should be accom-
panied by foot notes indicating with precision the authorities upon which
the papers are leased.

(4) "Bibliog-raphies of special subjects in the history of the State.

"It is hoped that with the coiiperation of historical students throughout the
State, these annual trdnxactionK may be given a substantial character which
will secure for them the respect and confidence of scholars and of all who are
interested in an accurate record of the history of Illinois."
