The Publisher has been induced to bring out this Work to supply what has been long acknowledged in the Island to be a desideratum. He has received encouragement in the prosecution of his undertaking from numerous unexpected quarters, and has pleasure in laying before the Subscribers and the Public the result of his labours. He has to apologise for the long delay which has occurred in its publication, and which arose from circumstances over which he had no control. He trusts the Work will be found useful as a book of reference; and he flatters himself, that from the great care taken in superintending it while passing through the Press, it may be relied upon for truthfulness and correctness.
He begs to acknowledge with gratitude the great assistance rendered by several gentlemen residing in the Island; and especially to JOHN THOMAS CLUCAS and RICHARD SHERWOOD, Esquires, he publicly conveys his heartfelt thanks. To the numerous Subscribers he also expresses his gratitude for their promised support.
RAMSEY, July, 1867.
