Prefatory Note 



Students of American history require no introduction, at this Lit- 
day, to the Draper Collection of Manuscripts in the Wisconsin State 
Historical Library. i Yr many years they have been constantly drawn 
upon by historical investigators. Around them as a nucleus has been 
developed a great historical library, manuscript and printed, to which 
ail serious investigators of the i roniier phase of American history mus 
ultimately ivs<>rt. 

Many years ago the late superintendent of the Society, Dr. K. ({. 
Yh wait es, published a descriptive list of its manuscript collection. ; ix 
present volume marks the tirst step toward the publication of a detailed 
cal . iidar of the Draper Manuscripts. In determining the contents of the 
volumes of the forthcoming series it has been deemed best to conform to 
the scheme of classification adopted for the original manuscripts. The 
present volume calendars the Preston and 1 he Virg.nia series of manu 
scripts. The former comprise six and the latter sixteen of the t oin 
hundred and sixty-nine bound volumes in the Draper Collection. A 
1 rief description of Ihe contents of the two series may be found on 
paxes (>0-G4 and 91-98 of the 1906 edition of the L)t.m i ip tvc L ^i of 
Manuscript Collections of the tfiatr Historical Society of Wisconsin, 
edited by Reuben G. Thwaites. The marginal pressmark i;.- 
di-ates the location of the original document in the Draper Collect - n. 
The number befoi e the letters shows in which volume of ihe serie- th 
document occurs, the letters designate the -cries, while the numb r f 1- 
iowing the letters indicates tlie page or pag - S of tlie volume occupied b. 
the document. To illustrate, in the case of the first document cal -n- 
dared tlie pressmark 16ZZ1-35 means that the document is found in 
the Virginia Series, volume xvi, pages 1-35. 

The work of calendaring the volume has been performed by Miss 
Mabel Clare Weaks, chief of the division of maps and manuscripts. 
The preparation of the copy for the press has been the work of Miss 
Annie A. Nnmis, assistant superintendent of the Society, and Mis.s 
Eleanore E. Lothrop, the superintendent s secretary.
