On the 13th of February, 1854, the Historical Society of Pennsylvania established a Publication Fund; by the terms of which any person whatever, on the payment of twenty dollars, becomes entitled to receive a copy of all of its future publications during the term of his life. The money thus received is invested on a special trust, and the interest alone is applied to purposes of publication. It already amounts to four thousand dollars. The present volume is the first fruit of this undertaking, and it is proposed to follow it with others of a like character. It is proper to add, that considerable aid is derived from the Society itself, and from the anticipated sale of the works thus produced.
Entered, according to Act of Congress, in the year 1854, by
THE HISTORICAL SOCIETY OF PENNSYLVANIA, in the Clerk's Office of the District Court of the United States for the
Eastern District of Pennsylvania.
