Excerpt from Memorial of the Centennial Celebration of the Battle of Paulus Hook, August 19, 1879: With a History of the Early Settlement and Present Condition of Jersey City, N. J

The Committee desire to express their obligations to Hon. Charles H. Winfield for a number of the plates used in this work, and also to the many business firms for their uniform courtesy and kindness in giving information and illustrations of their manufactories.

The map of Paulus Hook in 1779, portraits of Major Henry Lee, Lord Stirling, lion. Dudley S. Gregory and Hon. Henry J. Hopper were made expressly for this publication: the illustrations of the procession and the meeting in the Tabernacle were used (after having been reduced in size) by permission of the publishers of The Graphic, in which paper they appeared on August 20th, 1879. The statistics given are from official sources.

It was the wish of many citizens that the part relating to Jersey City should be made more comprehensive, but the committee felt that it was not their province to enlarge upon what must be the labor of some future historian.

The manufactories have been selected solely with a view to exhibit the rapid growth of the city, and while many more establishments could with propriety have been added, it was not thought to be necessary or desirable, sufficient being given to illustrate the vast interests which centre here, and which have contributed in a few years - within the memory of many of its inhabitants - to transform the sand-hills and marshes of Paulns Hook into a large commercial and manufacturing emporium, which must soon become the Metropolis of the State.
