Excerpt from The Story of the Sesqui-Centennial: Celebration of Pittsburgh, July 4, September 27 to October 3, and November 25, 1908

In presenting this work "The Story of the Sesqui-Centennial," to our friends, the publishers beg to say that it is not a "cut and dried history," but a readable story of what took place during "Pittsburgh's Greatest Birthday," and we desire to thank all who have so kindly helped us.

Much credit is due Mr. W. H. Stevenson, Chairman, and Mr. Burd S. Patterson, Secretary of the Executive Committee; Mr. H. D. W. English, Chairman Greater Pittsburgh Day Committee; Mr. A. J. Kelly, Jr., Chairman of Anniversary Day Committee; Dr. S. B. McCormick, Chairman of Pittsburgh University and Clergymen's Committee; Colonel Samuel Harden Church, Orator at the Block House; Mrs. Edith Darlington Ammon, President of Daughters of American Revolution; Captain James A. Henderson and George M. Lehman of Marine Committee; Judge Charles F. McKenna, Colonel William T. Patterson, Colonel S. W. Hill, Colonel Charles Otto Smith, and Major H. H. Bengough, of the Soldiers' Memorial Hall Committee, who made the work possible.

To the daily papers, who gave us the choice of all the views taken with articles from their pages, we thank the "Dispatch," "Post," "Sun," "Press," "Gazette-Times," "Chronicle-Telegraph," "Leader," and Walter C. Jarrett, Photographer.

We have spared neither time nor expense in making this the most valuable artistic book ever published about Pittsburgh; plates, paper and binding are of the finest quality. We also desire to thank our friends for their liberal patronage.
