Excerpt from Proceedings and Collections of the Wyoming Historical and Geological Society, Vol. 18: For the Year 1922
With the publication of Volume XVIII, the Society bridges the gap since Volume XVII was distributed. It is intended henceforth to issue the volumes annually i... n order that the valuable material furnished by the lectures and col lections may reach the members promptly. In so far as possible, each volume will cover the fiscal year.
The present volume was collected and arranged by Miss Kachlin during the summer and early autumn of 1922. Since then, our task has been to edit and index its contents.
The publishing committee are confident that the members of the Historical Society will feel entirely compensated for the long wait that has marked the issue of volume 18 by the interest and importance of its articles, Little Old wilkes-barre by Miss Brower, a witty, lively, and vivid description of wilkes-barre years ago, will be enjoyed by all who have known it as it was then, either by personal experience or through the recollections of others.
The two articles on the Pilgrims by William Brewster and the Rev. Ferdinand Von Krug, were particularly timely when read and furnish clear summaries of the principles and lives of the Pilgrim Fathers. The articles on Wilkes Barré's old newspapers by Oscar Jewell Harvey, were prepared with his usual scholarly research and presented so interestingly that through them the loss to the Society in his death is felt the more keenly.
