Excerpt from Narratives, Traditions and Personal Reminiscences: Connected With the Early History of the Bellows Family, and of the Village of Walpole, New Hampshire
Since that time, more than twenty years ago, this book has been widely sought by our kindred wishing to obtain more knowledge of their ancestors; and I have often been urged to supplement that sketch with my own recollections, as I am now the oldest living descendant.
In complying with this request, I have found a pleasant occupation in these last years of my darkened life and I would say to the kindred who may read these pages, do not criticise too severely the work of one who has attained nearly eighty-six years of age, and who for many years past has been almost totally blind. I may add, that I have drawn almost entirely upon my own recollections, and not upon manuscript records or printed matter, for whatever this book may contain. But, as Dr. Bellows' address at the family gathering, in 1854, garnered up much which properly belongs to this present narrative, I have felt at liberty to make such extracts from the account of the family as seemed of service in carrying out my plan.
