Excerpt from Collections, Historical and Miscellaneous and Monthly Literary Journal, Vol. 2 A liberal and enlightened patronage would t fail, even here, to call forth literary talent and enterprize. And we cant but indulge the hope, however delusive it may prove, that the citizens of new-hampshire - among the first in patriot ism and moral virtue, - will also distinguish themselves ere long as the friends and patrons of learning. In anuncing the proposed alteration in the plan of their work, the Editors would observe, that the original design will still be pursued, so far as to preserve all important papers which may fall into their hands relating to the early history of new-england. The work is intended to embrace, I. Historical Sketches of Indian wars, battles and exploits of the adventures and sufferings of captives among the In dians: also, the civil and ecclesiastical history of different towns and places in new-england, more particularly in this state.
