Bermuda Past and Present

It is believed that this book is sufficiently comprehensive to serve as a valuable guide to the Bermudas, now such a popular resort for American travellers who desire to exchange the rigours of our northern winter for blue skies and a balmy atmosphere. All points of interest, picturesque, historical, legendary, have received ample attention, while the reader is brought into contact with the characteristic pleasures of Bermuda life, the government and resources. In narrating the story of Bermuda's development from a proprietary settlement founded by the Virginia Company to a progressive colony with sound institutions, self-government and strong individuality, emphasis has been laid upon events which reveal the close historical bond existing between the islands and the United States. Heretofore this community of interest has received scant treatment from writers, much to the regret of American visitors; indeed, all the dramatic incidents of Bermudas part in the Civil War have been totally neglected, possibly because they are hidden in long-forgotten documents and personal narratives.
