Excerpt from Historic Mackinac, Vol. 1 of 2: The Historical, Picturesque and Legendary Features of the Mackinac Country; Illustrated From Sketches, Drawings, Maps and Photographs, With an Original Map of Mackinac Island, Made Especially for This WorkThe writer wishes to make grateful acknowledgment to the authors and publishers of the material quoted herein, who have generously accorded every assistance, making it possible to bring together this work as a contribution to the history of Mackinac. Especial care has been taken to give full credit in the bibliography and notes, to title, authors, and publishers, where quote matter has been used. The cooperation of the Michigan Historical Commission and the constant helpfulness of its secretary, Mr. George Newman Fuller, Ph.D., has been invaluable, and it would be a serious omission if their assistance were not recognized by these words of appreciation. The Mackinac Island State Park Commission and its superintendent gave every aid and encouragement, and to the splendid people of Mackinac Island there is due a word of thanks for their uniform courtesy and kindness.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
