Burlington, Connecticut free pdf Excerpt from Burlington, Connecticut: Historical Address I have felt some embarassment and much sense of incapacity in attempting to prepare and deliver a sketch of the history of a town of which I have never been myself a resident. One who has been brought up in a community has a familiar acquaintance with the locality, with the old homes and the old families, with the old traditions and legends, which makes it easy for him to understand the written materials that he may find, to put them into their proper place and read much between the lines, and which will naturally save him from the blunders into which a stranger may easily fall. But since your committee thought that they had no one more available, I was glad to undertake the pleasant task. If I am not a son of Burlington, I may at least claim, since Burlington and Bristol are sister towns, to be a nephew. And I trust that you may see before I am through that I may well take pride in claiming civic cousinship with many of the distinguished sons of Burlington. A local historian need not altogether deplore the fact that he is thrown upon the manuscript records for most of his early knowledge. In reading the original acts of the settlers themselves, recorded in their own language and handwriting, one comes to realize the hardship of their conditions, and the rugged resolution of their temper, far more than he could do by trusting to any later narrative. The early records of an old New England community are. refreshing to read after one has, in the reports of some Home Missionary Society, read the appeals for the evangelization and uplifting of the pioneer West.
