PREFACE. 

FREQUENT inquiries having been made of the Editor, 
during the preparation and printing of this work, as to the 
difference between the Colonial Kecords and Pennsylvania 
Archives, to which the present volume is a general index, 
it may be useful to state the following facts : 

It is believed that the early Kecords or Minutes of the 
Provincial Councils, &c., were kept on loose sheets of 
paper, and not ; at the time, recorded in books, as appears 
by frequent long intervals of dates, and blanks left for 
documents. Many of these loose sheets are in the hand 
writing of James Logan, the then Secretary, and after 
being for many years preserved in his family, were deposited 
among the archives of several societies; some having 
been recorded in the volumes in the State department, and 
some not being yet in print. At a subsequent period, it 
is believed, an attempt was made to collect and record in 
volumes as many of these loose sheets as could be obtained, 
but without entire success, though the collection from 168*2 
to 1790, now consists of 32 MS. volumes. As they were 
the only records in existence, and liable at any moment 
to be destroyed, the Philosophical and Historical Societies 
in 1836, directed the attention of the Legislature to the 
subject of their preservation by printing these volumes ; 
which, in 1837, resulted in an Act authorizing the Secre 
tary of the Commonwealth to cause a portion of them to

be printed. And again in 1838, another portion, so that 
in 1840, three volumes, bringing down the date to 1735, 
had been printed. Here the matter rested for several 
years, owing, it is understood, to financial difficulties. In 
1851, the subject was again revived, and the Secretary was 
authorized to continue the printing of the minutes, to the 
adoption of the State Constitution in 1789-90. This was 
accordingly done, the proofs being revised by clerks in 
the Secretary s office, till the whole were printed in sixteen 
volumes, including the first three volumes, which, having 
become scarce, were reprinted uniformly with the rest. 
These are the Colonial Records. 

In 1851, the Governor in his annual message stated 
that his " attention had been called to the large body of 
original papers in the State Department connected with the 
Colonial and Eevolutionary History of the State," and re 
commended the employment of a suitable person to select 
and arrange them for publication. A committee of each 
body was appointed to consider the suggestion of the Gov 
ernor, both of which made favorable reports, and the 
Assembly authorized the Governor to make such an 
appointment. The editor was honored with this selection; 
and after carefully examining all the papers of early date 
in pigeon-holes and bundles in the office, made his report as 
published, and presented by the Governor with his message 
to the Assembly, who by Act of March, 1852, appointed 
the person who had made the selection, to superintend the 
printing; but it was not till the 27th August, 1852, owing 
to various delays in making the contracts, that the publi 
cation was commenced. This collection containing about 
11,000 distinct papers, from originals in the Secretary s 
office, and now forming twelve volumes, constitutes the 
Pennsylvania Archives. 

As the two works make twenty-eight volumes, and the 
Kecords being without any other index than a meagre table 
of contents, from which but few facts could be ascertained, 



PREFACE. V 

and as there are twelve volumes of the Archives, which, 
though each volume contains a full index, yet requiring an 
examination of each, it was deemed advisable, for greater 
ease of reference, that a general index, embraced in one 
volume, should be prepared. The Assembly, perceiving 
this necessity, authorized the editor by Act to prepare it, 
and the present volume is the result of his labors. 

So far as the Eecords are concerned, it is an entirely 
original index, made from the volumes themselves, with 
which the editor had before no more acquaintance than 
other persons. As he prepared those for the Archives, the 
subjects were more familiar to him, yet the combination of 
the twelve indices into one, became equally necessary and 
not less laborious. 

It will be seen that the index is made very full and in 
detail, and it is believed that no important fact has escaped 
the notice of the editor. That so large a work, abounding 
with references to volumes and pages, should be entirely 
free from errors, cannot reasonably be expected or even 
hoped for ; but, it is believed, from frequent references made, 
while in progress, that they will be found very few and 
unimportant. If any are met with, the means of correcting 
many may be found in the fact, that all important subjects 
are referred to under several heads, as well as the one 
adopted by the editor. For the Archives, in such cases, 
the several volumes may prove also available. 

Some difficulty has been experienced in connecting events 
and names, from the circumstance that sometimes only the 
name, without the office ; and at others the title without 
the Christian name, occur, not even allowing for changes 
by promotions ; some confusion may, therefore, occur which 
could not well be avoided. 

It is, however, believed that with all its imperfections the 
index will promote a more intimate acquaintance with the 
history of our State, as detailed in the Records and Archives, 
than could possibly be attained without it, and make every 



VI PREFACE. 

one who chooses to consult and trace it, better acquainted 
with the occurrences of his own neighborhood at least. 
Indeed, the editor is satisfied that -no better and fuller 
history of the State can be found, than in the sources re 
ferred to in this volume. 

The volume has been so printed that it may be kept 
together or separated to suit the wishes of persons possess 
ing either the Kecords or Archives ; or both ; and to one 
who has neither, it will possess an interest, as referring to 
subjects on which he may desire information ; and obtain it 
from some library or neighbor, who has either one or both 
works. . 

The numerals refer to the volumes, and the figures to the 
pages.
