    Book details


It is found by observation and experience that one of the greatest pleasures that a man may enjoy is to return, after an absence of many years, to the place of his nativity, to view the scenes dear to him in days of youth and grasp the hands of old schoolmates, the memory of whose faces has been almost obhterated by the passage of time. No matter how meagre was his old home, nor how simple his surroundings, still there remains that undying interest in the scenes of his youth which causes him often to sigh for a few hours to roam over these old familiar spots. The poet has truthfully said: Hard indeed must a man be made By the toil and traffic of gain and trade To love not the spot where a boy he played. It was therefore thought that if a book could be written and supplied with the necessary illustrations to bring back some of the pleasant memories of the boyhood days of the many old citizens of Mount Morris who have removed to other fields of labor, as well as recall to those remaining, facts and history which may have escaped their memory; to bring back to students of old Rock River Seminary and of Mount Morris College, memories of pleasant hours in class-room and on the campus; and further to perpetuate in tangible form for the present rising generation, the state of affairs and, by many views, the appearance of the town and her most influential citizens, when they too may go forth to other fields of labor, or their memories of their childhood days fade in the dimness of advancing age, could a book be written to accomplish all this, and further serve to preserve the main facts for their intrinsic historical value, it was thought that a work of the kind would be both appreciated and given the proper support.

Review Text

  • By G Eason on July 25, 2013

    I found this copy hard to read due to the apparent failure of the publisher to start with a clear, clean copy of the archive. I did find the pictures clear enough to enjoy. Copies of the text from the book that I found on the internet through Ancestry.com was clear an easily read. I believe the printer either started with a bad copy or failed to use enough ink. I will not be buying any more books printed by this publisher if I can find books otherwise.
