Preface,   p. [51]

In the accompanying pages we present to the citizens of
Edgerton a directory of their village which will be found
complete in every particular. The historical informati6n
vas collected with great care, and the matter relating to
churches, societies, etc., we obtained of responsible officers
connected therewith. In registering the citizens we have
been careful to get each name correct and locate it prop-
er.ly. We find 347 names in our book, and reckoning on a
3 and i-16 basis, we find. the population of the village to be
I,O62. There are 9o separate business firms, some of whom
are engaged in several branches of trade, for instance sell-
ing groceries'as well as dry goods. We append a list of
