is an article " To Pass a Yoat to See whather that Henry

The Rev. Joseph Fullonton has for several years, as he
has had leisure, been collecting materials and writing a
history of Raymond. He made the very liberal offer to
give his manuscript to the town, provided the town would
print it.

At the annual meeting, 1867, the town voted to accept
the offer and to give a copy to every family in town. Mr.
Fullonton wished some time to revise his work, and has
delayed printing it.



ACKNOWLEDGMENTS.



At the annual town meeting in 1868, the town of Auburn
voted to pay one dollar and fifty cents for each and every
copy of Chase's History which should be subscribed for by
the inhabitants of the town, to be deducted from the sub-
scription price. In August, 1868,1 issued a circular, invit-
ing the natives of Chester, and others interested in the
history, in order to defray the expense of the illustrations,
to sul)scribe and advance money, — those advancing ten
dollars to have one copy of the Avork, and those advancing
twenty dollars to have two copies, and to have their names
and donations inserted in the book. This circular has been
very liberally responded to, greatly exceeding my most san-
guine expectations, and the donors have my hearty thanks.
Many of them being men of limited means, must in these
times of high taxation find it difficult to spare the money.
Without this liberality, the work could not have been
printed without a heavy loss.

The building now used as a wood-house, etc., by Benjamin Wilson, was a
; welling-house, and probably was built by John Karr, previous to 1740. The
f.3orings are split out and not sawed. John Karr has two mills on his inven-
ory in 1741, and if there had been a mill when the house was built, the
lioorings would hare been sawed, not spht. The house was used as a garrison.
There are some vestiges of an Indian encampment by the side of the mill-pond.

Page 544 : — Dearborn Heath, whose name frequently appears on the army-
lolls, was a son of Elijah Heath.
