"In explanation of the plan of this work, it may be stated that such an occasion as that upon which the veterans met was especially adapted to awaken recollections of the struggle for Independence. A Fourth-of-July festival in the old rendezvous of the Boston Tea-Party is surely well calculated to excite patiotic feeling; and when to those who participated in the festival are added a number of the veterans of the War of Independence, filled with glorious recollections, the effect is to turn the mind to the admiration and veneration of the men and deeds of the 'trying time.'." ---- from the Preface.
