Excerpt

In the preparation of the Delaware Guide the editors gratefully acknowledge the aid of Federal, State, and local governmental agencies, and of commercial and civic associations and appreciate the assistance of Arthur L. Bailey, librarian of the Wilmington Public Library, and his staff.

Among the many other individuals to whom the editors wish to express their gratitude for generous aid in special fields are: Julian Bacon, former U. S. Senator Thomas F. Bayard, the Rev. Robert Bell, Weston H. Blake, T. Leslie Carpenter, Lieutenant Governor Edward W. Cooch, Francis A. Cooch, W. S. Corkran, Charles M. Cullen, Judge Charles M. Curtis, Leon de Valinger Jr., Mrs. E. Paul du Pont, the Rev. Joseph H. Earp, Miss Mary Eastman, A. O. H. Grier, Mrs. Florence Hastings, Wilbert B. Hitchner, former Congressman Robert G. Houston, Dr. Frank Morton Jones, Miss Rosalie Martin, Mrs. Andrew Marvel, Miss Constance Moore, Judge John P. Nields, H. Geiger Omwake, Prof. Henry Clay Reed, Louis L. Redding, Mrs. Alden B. Richardson, Mrs. Henry Rockwell, Judge Richard S. Rodney, Laussat R. Rogers, James H. Semple, L. D. Shank, Mrs. Alice Steinlein, Secretary of State Charles L. Terry Jr., Francis Vincent, G. Morris Whiteside II, and Mayor J. Wallace Woodford.

The editors realize that in presenting material so detailed, and in many cases drawn from fragmentary and conflicting sources, there is possibility of error. If the reader will report to the Federal Writers' Project of Delaware any errors found in the text, corrections will be made in future editions.

In honor of the Tercentenary Celebration of the First Permanent Settlement made by the Swedes in 1638, especially full treatment has been given to the history and development of early Delaware.
