It is intended chiefly for gratuitous distribution to the members of the Bostonian Society and the City Council of Boston.In the latest edition of Mr. Whitmores Old State House Memorial, he charged me with having assailed the City Council in my first paper by offensive criticisms, which he characterized as an unworthy return for their great liberality. Being promptly called upon to point out the offensive criticisms, he was unable to do so. The only important criticism which he has ever quoted was in these words of my first paper -No such division of the space on the second floor, as the present, existed at any time during the official use of the building by the Legislature, Colonial, Provincial, Revolutionary, or State.The chief purpose of the appendix now reprinted was to demonstrate the truth of this statement. I think that purpose was accomplished- and that nothing yet produced by Mr. Whitmore has shaken it in the least.For the rest, when he points out anything I have written on this or any other subject, which can be justly characterized in such terms as he has seen fit to use, it may be my duty to pay further attention to him and his complaints.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
