PREFACE



In presenting this volume to the public the publisher lajs no claim to
any literary merit. It was not intended to be a history of Lawrence, but as
indicated by its title, a '' Gazetteer," which lexicographers define as " a book
containing names and brief descriptions," giving a short account of all the
prominent events which have transpired in this city from its infancy down to
Jan. 1, 1894, so far as could be ascertained by six months' work in collecting
and compiling the same. Many obstacles were encountered in procuring
from strictly authentic and official sources matters which occurred during
the first quarter of a century of the city's existence, as no complete files of
the three weekly newspapers published here prior to 1865 are available; the
early records of some of the corporations, churches, lodges and departments
have been lost, destroyed or disappeared by some means not accounted for.
The frequent changes in the management of the large corporations, prevents
the present officials from furnishing additional facts than those which they
have so willingly supplied, and the desired information had often to be
obtained from other sources at no small amount of time and expense. To
the secretaries of church societies, lodges and other organizations, the sin-
ceie thanks of the publisher is due for their prompt and valuable assistance.

The following authorities and publications have been consulted and
aided materially in furnishing interesting matter which this work contains :
Wadsworth's Qiiarter-Centennial History of Lawrence, published in 1878 ;
history of " Catholicity in Lawrence," by Miss Katharine A. O'Keeffe, and
the chapters devoted to this city in the histories of Essex county, written by
ex-Mayors R. H. Tewksbury and John R. Rollins. Many of the older resi-
dents have rendered much valuable aid, and the generous patronage of our
enterprising advertisers has enabled the publisher to make the price of the
book at so low a sum as to have its place in the libraries of most of the
households in this city.

The main motive in preparing this work was to preserve to the present
and future generations matters that are forgotten or bid fair to become buried
in oblivion. Some of the events chronicled may seem trivial to a few people
but will be of interest to others, especially the older residents, and it is hoped
will assist the labors of some future historian in preparing a semi-centennial
history of Lawrence, in 1895.
