TO THE READER
In the book, the author used an abbreviation for each of the sources he used. When he used material from one of them, he would place some symbol (*, †, ‡, ƒ, etc.) in front of the text and also at the bottom of the page with the abbreviation.
I am going to make a small change here. Instead of an abbreviation, I will number each of the sources. When a source is referenced, I will place that number in front of the text. Clicking the number will open a browser window with this page. Simply close the window to return to your reading.
If you encounter problems or anything, please be sure to write me.

When names of persons are mentioned, they are of Ipswich, unless otherwise expressed or implied. Many interesting facts, having only a general bearing on this Town, have been chiefly omitted. Modern concerns, necessarily adduced, to accord with our plan, are, though of little attraction to us, as likely to interest our successors, as ancient ones are to interest us. The mistakes which occur on a part of the following pages, are not owing to the want of endeavour to avoid them.
To the numerous individuals, who have punctually and kindly assisted in supplying materials for this work, the writer of it returns his unfeigned thanks.
