Perth on the Tay
Preface to Addenda

The letters and other matter in the Addenda are copied from original correspondence and other official documents in the Canadian Archives; for that reason everything therein contained can be depended on as authentic. They are each worth reading, telling truly the story of long ago, and more vividly than any historian of to-day could write it.

The collecting, arranging and caring for the precious historical matter in the Archives is one of the most important branches of our Civil Service. Dr. Brymner is an ideal archivist, being thoroughly conversant with all points of Canadian history, and devoted to the office. Mr. Duff, assistant, and Miss Casey, are genial and helpful, and can offer many valuable suggestions to the seeker after knowledge of men and manners of the far away past. It cannot but be gratifying to every Canadian to have our history so well guarded, and find the lively interest in and affection for it evinced by all connected with the Archives.
