Excerpt from An Historical Digest of the Provincial Press, Vol. 1: Being a Collation of All Items of Personal and Historic Reference Relating to American Affairs Printed in the Newspapers of the Provincial Period Beginning With the Appearance of the Present State of the New-English Affairs, 1689 HE scheme of this work involves the exact reproduction of the text of the American newspapers, other than their reprints of foreign intelligence in the English journals, from the first attempted American newspaper in the year 1690, of which only a single number was issued, down through the Provincial Period closing with the year 1783. The first series, of which this is volume one, is to cover the Massachusetts press, for in the Province of the Massachusetts Bay American journalism had its beginning, and here alone was continued with a single newspaper through a decade and a half, or till 1719. Except in the provinces of Pennsylvania and New York, and there only in the cities of Philadelphia and New York, journalism was not planted elsewhere till after the first quarter of a century had passed. The news of the Massachusetts press, however, was by no means con fined to that province. The field of the Massachusetts periodicals was all the English colonies in America, and in their columns was reported not only the news of the other colonies but that of the West Indies, Nova Scotia, and Newfoundland, so far as news gathering facilities were effective in those primitive days.
