THE



MAGAZINE OF AMERICAN HISTORY

WITH NOTES AND QtJERIES.



OPINIONS OF DISTINGUISHED HISTORICAL STUDENTS.



Fiom Mr. JAMES PARTOM, author of the «' Life
of Benjamin Franklin/' &c.
* * Your Magadne improves constantly. I am
indebted to it every month for pleasure and instruction.



From Mr. FRANCIS PARKMAK, the Historian.
Boston, Mass.
* * There can be but one opinion nji to the value
of the Afti^atine of American History, Many of the
original papers it contains are of great interest, and in
its department of documents it has preserved add made
accessible some xuriotts and important papers. Its
notices of new publications supply the best means I
know for keeping au courant of contemporary writings,
great and small, on the subject . to which it is devoted.
Every student of American History .has a stake ih its
success and prosperity.



From Hon. JOHN RUSSELL BARTLETT,
Providence, R. L

The AfagatUne of American History fills a place in
our literature which has long been vacant. Many of its
contributions are from scholars known to fame, and are
marked for their thoroughness of research. Other good
features are its notices of new publications appertaining
to American Histoiy, to the Aborigines, to Ethnology,
Genealogy, etc., aU of which are appropriate in a Mag.
azine of this kind.



From Mr, SIDNEY HOWARD GAY, West New
Brighton, Staten Island, N. Y.

I can say frankly after a year's reading; that I read
your Magaziio always with profit and pleasure. To a
lover of books, the beauty of its " j^ct np " is charming ;
to one who valueis the inside as well, as the outside of
books, the choice and treatment of subjects, the schol-
arly tune, and the real historical knowledge it contxiins,
make it indispensable to every studeht ol. American
History, of which there is still so mtfch to ^-be learned.



From Hon. JOHN JAY, New York City.
^ I-regard your Maganne of American History as filling
an important place in our Literature. It is gathering
materials for History that are in danger of being lost,
and it keeps *up a fresh interest in the memories of the
past whose influenee was n^er more essential to the
respectability of the American oharaeter. The scbol-
ariy and judicious tone displayed in its original papeis
and critical reviews afid notices must command respect
'at home and abroad.



From Mr. B. P. DeCOSTA, New York.
* ♦ I take pleasure in adding my testimony to that
of the large nuinber of historical students who have
expressed so decided an opinion respecting the import-
ance and value of the work .to whiph the Maga%ine of
American History is devoted.



From Mr. JOHN WARD DEAN, of the NewEng.

land Historic Genealogic Society^ Boston, Mass.

I have been a constant reader of the Magtuine of

Amef ican History^ which for nearly tWQ years has been

published by you, and have a very high opinion of the

work. The Magazine contaiuB papers on topics^f

interest in the history of our country, which are well

written and embody the results of much patient research.

.Mr. Stevens^ the editor, has shown good taste and jndg*

ment fn the management of the work; and you as its

publishers, deserve much credit for its fine typographic

appearance. I hope the liberal patronage, which I am

told it has received, will be continued and increased.

From J. M. BASSETT, San Francisco, Cal.
I regard the Magazine as the most valuable of his-
torical publications.
