A. T. Clearwater, of Kingston, and others, who recognized in them a prolific source of reliable information concerning the trials and tribulations, habits and customs, of the hardy Dutch settlers of old Esopus. The Superintendant of this work is indebted to Judge Clearwater for his assistance in obtaining access to the records here indexed."
