The writer saw so much valuable history that should be pre served in book form, and the pamphlets seemed to supply only a temporary need, that he concluded that the work should be continued until there were sufficient pages to bind in stiff covers for permanent use. The arrangement of the material is any thing but orderly, it is a collection of valuable Snyder County history, thrown into the book, where it was most convenient. To us it was the choice of doing it this way or not at all, and we chose this method, rather than not do it at all. The material has been selected from the post for its historical value as it appeared in the newspaper, and the linotype slugs made up in book pages and printed before slugs were thrown away. This is the reason the material could not be arranged in a logical or chronological order.
