For another year.
With this issue the Register begins a new volume—its twenty-second.
It is published by the Medford
Historical Society in the interest of historic accuracy, and for the benefit of our home city.
Its preparation is, and always has been, a labor of love on the part of editors, contributors and the Society.
To the latter it has, until recently, been an expense, and at present is barely self-supporting.
The city, whose interest it serves, in no way bears any part of its cost, nor (contrary to the statements that come to us from time to time) has ever so done.
The publishing society itself (contrary to expressed opinion) has received but scant assistance from the general public, and what it has accomplished has been almost wholly by the effort and contribution of its membership.
The opportunity is still open for the ‘public spirit’ of Medford
to manifest itself in ways it has not yet done.
We regret the lateness of this issue, and hope for an earlier appearance of the next, with new features.
