* Whatver strikes your fancy, as long as it relates to our mission. As Abel Bowen wrote in 1825:
"Notwithstanding the multitude of publications which traverse every section of the United States, the heralds of daily intelligence, there is not one which has for it subject a course precisely like that which is there submitted to the public. Our motto is, Observe and Preserve, and in doing this, it will be the ambition of the publisher and editor of the City Record, to draw from the mouldering archives of our forefathers the reminiscences of former times, and systematize those important local events, which will serve the future historian."
