Guides who show strangers the points of interest are often poorly furnished with reliable information, and many residents are hardly better informed. In presenting this volume through its Pilgrimage Committee, formed in 1902 to provide reliable guidance for D. A. R. chapters visiting Cambridge, the Hannah Winthrop Chapter hopes to be of service to all those, both stranger and resident, who are interested in the history of the city.Since 1905 about two thirds of the articles here published in book form have appeared in the columns of The Cambridge Tribune, through the courtesy of the editor, Mr.

Edward F. Gamwell, under whose supervision they were printed. To Lucius R. Paiges History of Cambridge the committee has turned as authority for facts of history. County records and private papers have been carefully read, and the utmost accuracy of statement sought. Some mistakes have doubtless occurred, but as far as possible dates have been verified by reference to wills, deeds, histories, and biographies.

The original lots of land granted to the first settlers are here described, and the names of their owners, with subsequent transfers given from early to recent times. Many of the cuts have been made expressly for this book, and appear for the first time.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
