Janus Mourns Esq. And a historical and topographical view (if the towns of Haddam and east-haddam, by the Rev. David D. An, published in 1814; the work has been wholly compiled from original materials. The facts have been collected either directly by ourselves, or through'the aid of correspond ents. Every county, and almost every impbrtaut town in each State, has been visited; and a circular letter, specifying the several subjects upon which information was requested, has been addressed to one or more of the most intelligent inhabitants in every other town. The great number of gentlemen who, in this way, have furnished information for the work, are entitled to our' warmest acknowledgments We are sensible, that information obtained in this mode may, in some instances, have been erroneous; but considering the respectable sources from whence it has been derived, we have no doubt, but that in general it will be found correct. In noticing the sources of our infor-f matron, we should do injustice, were we to omit to state, that for the facts relative to the first settlements of towns and much other historical infd'rma lion', We are extensively indebted to Trumbull's history of Connecticut?' a work disclosing more research, and more indefatigable industry, tha most any other which has appeared in this State.
