Excerpt from Boston and Her Story

The purpose of this book is to tell the story of Boston in a simple and interesting way, which will appeal especially to pupils of the early grammar school age. It does not pretend to give all the details of historical occurrences nor of modern things of interest, but aims to present the most important facts in a way that they can be understood easily, and with a thread of interest that will increase the probability of their retention.

The story is divided into four parts: the Settlement of Boston, including the Physical Features of Original Boston; the Boston of Early Colonial Days; the Boston of Revolutionary Days; the Boston of To-day. In each part the story is told by the use of fictitious characters, who are made to take part in genuine events, accurately described.

The localities described in the fourth part are not held to be the only places of interest nor even those most worthy of atten tion, but an attempt has been made to present material from which one or two facts about each section of Boston may be learned, with the view of Obtaining a clearer conception of the extent and attractiveness of the city.
