Contributions to the ecclesiastical history of Essex County, Massachusetts
The object of this volume is to collect, and put into a more permanent form, for preservation, such materials for an Ecclesiastical History of Essex North, as were accessible. These materials have been "gathered from various sources; and as the work has been done by different persons, with little opportunity of mutual consultation, it must necessarily lack the unity which a single mind would have given it. Sketches of the members of the Ministers' Meeting were also prepared, but omitted for want of space.

The Essex North Association has, within a few years, been grievously afflicted in the loss of valued members. Messrs. Braman, Perry, Kimbal, and Holbrook, who knew very much of its early character, passed away within a few months of each other, and before a Centennial gathering was contemplated. The books passed into the hands of others, who, in looking over them carefully, found that we were nearing the day which would complete the first century of the Association.
