A HISTORY OF THE PRESS OF MICHIGAN

PREPARED FOR THE CENTENNIAL BY ORDER OF GOV. JOHN J. BAGLEY TOM S. APPLEGATE, COMPILER
Section I


compiler's note In the preparation of this brief history of the press of Michigan, the compiler found many difficulties. He was, himself, crowded with other work, and this seemed to be the case with the rest of his journalistic brethren in the State. It was with great difficulty that they could be prevailed upon to furnish the data absolutely necessary to the preparation of the work, and the responses to the compiler's repeated requests for information have extended over a period of five months. Of necessity, then, the work is imperfect, but such as it is, it is done, not indeed to the satisfaction of the compiler; still less, perhaps, does it fill the idea of others under whose notice it may fall. It is tolerably certain that many changes have occurred since the preparation of the work has been begun. Such changes as have been brought to the compiler's attention have been noted in the work; probably others have escaped notice. In concluding his task the compiler has the hope that, perhaps he has col-, lected material that may aid some abler hands in the preparation of a volume that shall be a more complete and perfect history, and which may do more ample justice to the subject. But he entered on an untrod field, in which but for the help he has received, he would have been hopelessly lost. To such as have rendered him assistance he extends thanks, and only wishes that their numbers had been commensurate with his needs. Then would the task which devolved upon him have been better accomplished. Adrian, May 1, 1876.
