Excerpt

The main outlines of the record of men and events connected with the house are to be found in the pages of any general history. The minor facts have been gathered from the scattered and fading sources of the period, and many persons have helped with the task. Of these it is possible to mention only a few: Dr. Charles W. Smith, Jr., who began the research; Mr. David C. Mearns, Dr. Thomas P. Martin, and Dr. Elizabeth McPherson, of the Library of Congress, who lent their generous aid in the examination of the collections of the Library; and Miss Virginia Meekison of the Department of State, who gave various kinds of help in fitting together the details of research into the fabric of narration. The author's grateful acknowledgment is also to be made to Mr. Stanley Woodward, Chief of the Division of Protocol, and to Dr. E. Wilder Spaulding, Chief of the Division of Research and Publication, of the Department of State.
