OUR CONTRIBUTORS.[edit]

ACKNOWLEDGMENTS and thanks are tendered, with due appreciation, to those friends who have kindly contributed toward making this book of interest and worth to those to whom it is specially dedicated:

  • To Miss CARRIE M. HILLS, for her finely written article on "The Glimmerglass," much assistance in collating and preparing for the press data embraced in "The Chronicles" from 1838 to 1886, and proof-reading.
  • To Mr. G. POMEROY KEESE, for his valuable article on local "Meteorology," and the statistics accompanying it relating to the ice leaving the Lake; an article on "The Cooper Monument," etc.
  • To Miss SUSAN FENIMORE-COOPER, for her interesting articles on "The Thanksgiving Hospital" and "The Orphan House of the Holy Saviour."
  • To Mr. ELIHU PHINNEY, for his article and valuable statistics on "Fish and Fishing in Otsego Lake."
  • To Dr. JOHN K. LEANING, for his brief sketch of Fly Creek and its early settlers.
  • To Mr. ISAAC K. WILLIAMS, for his chapter on Pierstown history, of special interest to the families who were the principal early settlers of that neighborhood and their now widely-scattered descendants. He has collated and put on record facts which might otherwise have been lost to the next generation.
  • The Essay of the late Hon. ISAAC N. ARNOLD on Mr. Cooper, is the tribute not only of a warm personal friend and admirer, but is the most discriminating and just, and one of the best written panegyrics on the great Novelist and Naval Historian, which has ever been published. Mr. Arnold wielded a polished and scholarly pen. We also give an extract of local interest from an address which he made in Cooperstown a few years before his death.
