Our twentieth volume.

The October issue of the Register completed two decades of service in the preservation of Medford annals. It has put into permanent form for reference many of the interesting papers that have been prepared for and read before the Historical Society,which assumes its publication and gathered up very many local incidents and features of interest that otherwise would have been lost. All these can be safely drawn upon by such as shall sometime write an adequate history of our city. Exclusive of title and index, its pages now number 2140 of superior quality.

It has always been a labor of love by its contributors and editors, and no inconsiderable draft on the Society's treasury. Other historical works our town and city have three times assisted financially, but the Register has been maintained by its own and the Historical Society's efforts. The text-book used in our public schools has drawn largely upon it for facts, and was carefully examined by the Register editor before its introduction.

We bespeak for the coming issue a more lively interest and larger circulation, and call attention to the fact that a limited number of full sets may yet be procured which contain a wealth of information nowhere else to be found regarding our city.

Few historical societies can show a longer or better record in publication. If as far as possible, members become subscribers, and by individual work add thereto, a better future awaits our effort. [p. 25]
