An Historical Sketch of Amherst, in the County of Hillsborough free pdf Excerpt from An Historical Sketch of Amherst, in the County of Hillsborough: In New-Hampshire, From the First Settlement to the Present Period The Preservation of historical facts is supposed to confer an obligation on posterity.
