PREFACE.

 

The writer of this short Story of Nevin has herein presented an account of facts and events occurring in the attempt to establish in Iowa a new "Boston", together with brief biographic notes of the most prominent actors.

The sources of information have been his own private journals, largely supplemented from the memories of himself and his wife; also from the memories and records of other survivors of the old colony.

For its preparation, he has no apology to make.  The work was undertaken at the suggestion of a few remaining friends and pioneers of the place; and, although attended with considerable labor, it has been a pleasant diversion.

It is dedicated to the entertainment and use of the descendants of those early day settlers, as well as to others who are interested in reminiscences of the beginnings of the New England Colony of Iowa.

J. L. E.
Dewey Lawn, May, 1901.
