The county of Cape May has a most honorable history and the one aim of the author has been to tell the facts as he finds them and yet try to keep away from the dryness which characterizes such works. There may be errors in the vol ume, but the author has been very careful in the verification of dates and names. The different ways of spelling family names is caused by the literal copying of the records from which they are taken.
If this volume serves to preserve to the people the history of the county, the author will feel that he has been repaid for his efforts. Lewis T. Stevens.
