PREFATORY NOTE.

This volume contains an abstract of the proceedings of the Connecticut Valley Historical Society, beginning with its first meeting in April, 1876, and ending with its quarterly meeting in December, 1881. It also contains all the papers read at the meetings of the Society that have been furnished by their authors for publication. Other valuable papers have been read from time to time, as will be seen by reference to the proceedings, which have not come into the possession of the Society.

The steel portrait of William Pynchon, the pioneer in ' the Massachusetts settlements of the Connecticut Valley, has been furnished by Dr. Joseph C. Pynchon of Springfield, one of his descendants.
