History of the town of Marlborough, Cheshire County, New Hampshire
In the fall of 1873, I was induced, partly by my own tastes and pleasures, and partly by the earnest request of several citizens and former residents, to commence the collection of items for the History of Marlborough; and now, after more than seven years of labor in this direction, with reluctance I lay down my pen, feeling that, though so much time and labor have been spent in the preparation of this work, it is yet imperfect in many of its details. Still I have done the best I could with the material at hand. He who has not entered upon an undertaking of this kind can form no adequate idea of the vast amount of labor required to complete it. The work has been delayed beyond expectations and to the disappointment of many ; bat it must be remembered that the writer is one of that unfortunate class who is dependent on his own hands for support, and therefore has been unable to devote his whole time to this work, as he has received no aid financially.
