To the Descendants of Thomas Dickinson

Excerpt from To the Descendants of Thomas Dickinson: Son of Nathaniel and Anna Gull Dickinson, of Wethersfield, Connecticut, and Hadley, Massachusetts Who for more than two hundred and fifty years, have left an honorable record in America, this work was undertaken six years since. It is sent forth with the h0pe that it may tend to inspire the living descendants with the spirit of emulation, for (quoting Mr. Wharton Dickinson at Amherst, It cannot be denied that having sprung from a virtuous and respectable family inspires a man with confidence, when he is con scious that he does not disgrace his descent. When families, living in a Republic like ours, can maintain unbroken for over two centuries their prestige as soldiers, statesmen, jurists, scholars and divines, and fill the highest offices in State and Nation with credit and ability, they certainly deserve the reverence and esteem of their fellow-citizens, and it is but just to them that a record of their lives and works should be preserved to posterity.
