This work being published by subscription, we have added a list of those subscribing, whose names were transmitted to us prior to its going to press, since which numerous others have been handed to the Agents, but not as yet transmitted to us, which precludes their appearing with the rest .
As we have among our Subscribers many celebrated names, either in connection with Rhode Island, or from other causes, we have, in order to add to the interest of the work, given a facsimile of their respective signatures.
The Author's acknowledgments are due to the many friends
who have aided him in the progress of the work, and more
particularly to David Melville, Esq., and B. B. Howland,
Esq.; also for information gleaned from the Notes of the late
Henry Bull, Esq., and Ross's " Historical Discourse"; also to
many other gentlemen, who have taken a lively interest in this enterprise.
