PREFACE



PN presenting to the public the result of liis obser-
vations in relation to the weather, and of the more
remarkable events transpiring in the Old Colony and
vicinity, the author makes no pretence of introducing
a work to be valued for its scientific discoveries, or its
literarj- attainments ; but he introduces, rather, the
diary of a plain mechanic, surveyor, and farmer,
kept for sixty-three years, with such completeness
as his laeans of information would allow, and, as is
generally believed, the most perfect consecutive record
for so long a period of time. The facts here embraced
are compiled in a convenient form for reference, and
are given to the public at the earnest solicitation of a
large number of his friends, Avho have deemed this
record worthy to be preserved.

To meet the almost universally conceived opinions
that the moon, in some way, is made to affect the
weather, the position of that planet is given for the
entire period ; and though the " weather wise " who





^ a jr ■ I



,m^ ■ : ■ ■ ■■ ^^^

look for frosts on the occasion of a full moon, or in any
other way imagine that this "heavenly orb which
revolves round tlie earth " has any effect upon the
weather, may be disappointed to find their theories
exploded, the facts will be no less valuable, either to
the scholar or the man of business.

In the Appendix, the author has sought only to sub-
mit a few of the observations and opinions of scientific
men — already before the public — to show that they
are in harmony with his own record of what has ac-
tually transpired.

Presuming upon the indulgence of the public, and
profoundly grateful to his numerous friends for their
many words and acts of encouragement in the prose-
cution of his labors, this volume is now presented to
the reader, in the hope that the result of his labor
will not be unacceptable.
