MY DEAR FRIEND,
The turmoils of the press having subsided, I am now enabled to place this volume in your hands. The "why and the wherefore" of its appearance is so fully accounted for in the following Introductory Matter, as to require no further mention here; except that a word or two may be added in aid of the general argument. In this light, allow me expressly to call your attention to the Climature, and its monthly phenomena around Hartwell, which constitute a calendar expressly drawn up from personal observation, unremitting inquiry, gleanings of folk-lore, and a careful reduction of your voluminous meteorological records. This summary, it is to be hoped, will prove at once correct and trustworthy, since I have taken great pains and bestowed much labour to render it so; therefore it may be unhesitatingly stated, that, in any further inquiry of the kind, this Manor may henceforth be enrolled among the known instantiæ worthy of being relied upon.
The descriptions given in illustration of the Geology of the Hartwell area are entitled to a similar confidence, being about as complete as the present advance of the science admits of; for, though the palæontology of the district is still open to an enlarged scrutiny, the stratification of its inorganic beds is not likely to be materially altered.
I need hardly advert to the Historical and Archæological portions of the
