PREFATORY ADDRESS.

AT length my promised volume is concluded; wherein I have striven to present in a useful and attractive form the history of a locality which has now during seventeen years contained my home. Nor have I here omitted opportunities to preserve by the pencil and the graving-tool a faithful resemblance of interesting objects, the originals of which are-in some instances -already marred or modified since the drawings were made.

Should the result of all my labor prove satisfactory to those for whom I write-and should additional copies of the book, for this cause, quit my shelves, to enter the libraries of topographers, or to be hailed elsewhere as memorative of a well-known spot by those who have spent some portion of their time within its bounds, my fullest expectations will be then achieved.

G. M.

EVESHAM,

SEPTEMBER, 1845.
