Purchase of this book includes free trial access to www.million-books.com where you can read more than a million books for free. This is an OCR edition with typos. Excerpt from book: PREFACE. LAST summer I wrote a chapter for Frank Hall's Second Volume of the History of Colorado, on Greeley and the Union Colony of Colorado, from the spring of 1871 up to date. The first year had been sketched by the author in his first volume. While engaged in this work, it occurred to me that a more extended view of our history would be desirable in a separate volume, and which could be had at a figure so low as to be within the reach of all. The present time appeared to me a favorable one for this work as many of the old landmarks are disappearing, and the data I found were beginning to be difficult to procure. The files of The Tribune were incomplete, nearly the whole of the first year being missing, while The Sun has no files previous to 1885. The deficiency above pointed out, is made good to a certain extent by the care of H. T. West who has collected in a Scrap Book a large number of newspaper articles relating to the colony during the first three years. Mr. West has been kind enough to put this in my hands together with other valuable documents, some of which will be printed in full in the appendix. Mrs. N. C. Meeker and Mrs. Skewes, her daughter, have also furnished me valuable papers?articles published in The New York Tribune from the pen of N. C. Meeker, when he was on his trip to the Rocky Mountains prior to the formation of the colony, and also some forty letters frcm Horace Greeley to Mr. Meeker during the years 1870, 1871 and 1872. The greater portion of these last I have seen fit to publish on account of their historical value, and to show the deep interest Mr. Greeley took in the welfare of the colony and his friendship for and confidence in N. C. Meeker. It may seem to some out of place to publish a history of this length about a place so small in...… (mais)
