Inwriting this brief account the Federal Writers Project hasmade use of Lamberts History of the New Haven Colonywritten a hundred years ago, of Barber, of Trumbull, and ofthe various works mentioned in the Bibliography. Mostly,however, we have followed the lines of the Town Recordswhich constitute an unusually full and valuable body of in-formation concerning events in Milford from the time of itsfounding.

Here in gnarled authenticity, in sometimes refrac-tory spelling, is revealed the sturdy grain of the ancestralstock. The things which they took care about in their townmeetings, their interests, their judgments are matters of con-cern and precedent to their grateful descendants and to allwho live in Milford and are susceptible to its traditions.There could be no more fitting act of commemoration thanto remove their words from the crumbling edges of theoriginal volumes and to publish them for the use of his-torians.

Few towns can have such important material to offerthe legal scholar, the historian, and the antiquarian. It isgreatly to be hoped that a memorial volume may be broughtforth containing the Town Records from 1639 into the 19thCentury, as well as selected deeds, land records, and otherdocuments of prime importance.

If the writing of this his-tory should pave the way for such a publication, it will haveserved perhaps its most useful purpose.
