INTRODUCTION.



The Old South Leaflets were prepared primarily for circulation
among the attendants upon the Old South Lectures for Young People.
The subjects of the Leaflets are immediately related to the subjects of the
lectures, and they are intended '.o supplement the lectures and stimulate
historical interest and inquiry among the young people. They are made
up, for the most part, from original papers of the periods treated in the
lectures, in the hope to make the men and the public life of the periods
more clear and real.

The Old South Lectures for Young People were instituted in the sum-
mer of 1883, as a means of promoting a more serious and intelligent atten-
tion to historical studies, especially studies in American history among the
young people of Boston. The success of the lectures has been so great as
to warrant the hope that such courses may be sustained in many other
cities of the country.

The Old South Lectures for 18S3, intended to be strictly upon subjects
in early Massachusetts History, but by certain necessities somewhat modi-
fied, were as follows: "(iovernor Bradford and Governor Winthrop "

The Old South Lectures are devoted primarily to American history.
But it is a constant aim to impress upon the young people the relations of
our own history to English and general European history. It was hoped
that the glance at some striking chapters in the history of the last eight
centuries afforded by these lectures would be a good preparation for the
great anniversaries of 1889, and give the young people a truer feeling of
the continuity of history. In connection with the lectures the young
people were requested to fix in mind the following dates, observing that in
most instances the date comes about a decade before the close of the cen-
tury. An effort was made in the Leaflets for the year to make dates,
which are so often dull and useless to young people, interesting, significant,
and useful. — -iith Century: Lanfranc, the great mediaeval scholar, who
studied law at Bologna, was prior of the monastery of Bee, the most famous
school in France in the nth century, and archbishop of Canterbury under
William the Conqueror, died 1089. 12th Cent.: Richard I. crowned
1 1 89. 13th Cent. : Dante, at the battle of Campaldino, the final overthrow
of the Ghibellines in Italy, 1289. 14th Cent.: Wyclif died, 1384. 15th
Cent.: America discovered, 1492. i6th Cent.: Spanish Armada, 1588.
17th Cent.: William of Orange lands in England, 1688. iSth Cent.:
Washington inaugurated, and the Bastile fell, 1789. The Old South

boldt's " Cosmos " ; (6) " The Defeat of the Spanish Armada," from Cam-
den's "Annals"; (7) "The Bill of Rights," 16S9; (8) " The Eve of the
French Revolution," from Carlyle. The selections are accompanied by
very full historical and bibHographical notes, and it is hoped that the
series will prove of much service to students and teachers engaged in
the general survey of modern history.

The year 1889 being the centennial both of the beginning of our own
Federal government and of the F>ench Revolution, the lectures for the
