IN presenting this book to the public, it has been the aim of the Editor to awaken an increased interest in New England's fairest and loveliest regions, and to assist the seeker after pleasure to obtain a more perfect knowledge of the grandeur and beauty of Connecticut Valley scenery and that bordering on it. He has aimed to discard glittering generalities for solid substance, stopping by the way only long enough to point out the piquant condiments that each may flavor to his own taste. He has also endeavored to present briefly and tersely each object of interest from its own standpoint, so that the traveler, whether in pursuit of business or pleasure, can find something suited to his wants.
Every town and mountain of importance on the entire route, from the Ocean to the St. Lawrence, has been visited, and the statements made concerning them in this volume are from original and reliable sources, and not from hasty glances and antiquated gazetteers, as is too frequently the case with many of the guide books that have been published.
In preparing the Guide the Editor has kept in view the wants of the public, and has bestowed commendation only upon such places and persons as he conscientiously believed to be worthy, avoiding in every instance that which might tend to vex and mislead.
An occasional anecdote and reminiscence, many of them never before in print, have been culled from the way-side and are here presented, to enliven and relieve the monotony of description, as too much of a good thing is apt to weary the best of tastes.
The Guide is at your service, Reader, and it is hoped you will find in it a help to your enjoyment of a tour through the Connecticut Valley, where it is confidently believed you can find increased health and a pleasant life-long remembrance. .
