To William H. Abbott,
Titusville, Penn'a.

In submitting to a discerning, yet indulgent public, this volume, relating to the History of Petroleum, with Life Sketches, of many of the prominent men in the Pennsylvania Oil Region, identified therewith, I beg to associate with my unpretending labors, your own honored name, known and acknowledged as that of an enterprising business man, a public-spirited citizen, a high-toned Christian gentleman. Your characteristic reserve, I know, would prompt you to shrink from such conspicuous mention; but the public voice pronounces you one of the worthiest members of the community, and I cannot deny myself the privilege of paying this dedicatory tribute to one who has sustained my enterprise with never-failing sympathy and encouragement.

J. T. Henry.
