Excerpt from Catalogue of Original Documents in the English Archives: Relating to the Early History of the State of Maine In 1856, before quilting Europe, after an absence from home of more than six years, I gave a commission to Mr. H. G. Somerby to look up and make a list of the papers in the English archives relating to the old Province of Maine. The following pages contain the results of his labors in executing this commission; and altho' disappointed in some measure by the paucity of the earlier documents, especially in relation to the movements of the brave old knight, Sir Ferdinando Gorges, the founder of the colonial settlement of Maine, I find no reason to regret having had the examination of the records made by so competent a person as Mr. Somerby. The list shows what can be found in the archives of the State Paper Office and the British Museum, of the desired character, and leaves no room to expect anything more. A few of the papers indicated have already found their way into print, and others may exist in some of our public records; but, with these exceptions, the mass of documents will be seen by the historical student to be a valuable accession to what was to be found in this country, either in print or manuscript, on the subject of the various enterprises for the colonisation of the northern coast of the United States. Having met with the "Defence of Sir Ferdinando Gorges Against The Charge Of Having Betrayed The Earl Of Essex," written by himself, among the MSS. of the British Museum, I procuied a copy of it, but afterwards discovered it had been recently printed by the Royal Society of Antiquaries; it is, however, inserted at the end of these papers, together with the interesting letter of Mr. Bruce, F. S. A. to Mr. Payne Collier, Vice-President of that Society, on the subject of Sir Ferdinando's Defence. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
