TO THE PEOPLE OF ELMA
 
When I commenced to write the History of the Town of Elma, there was no thought of financial compensation, or that it would ever be printed; but to please friends and to secure some records and items that might be helpful to some future writer of history.

I now make to the people of the town of Elma a free gift of the time, thought, study, and labor, which in the last four years have been devoted to gathering the information, arranging the items, and writing this history trusting that a generous public will not be too severe in criticising the errors and omissions.
 
Warren Jackman.

DEDICATION
 
This book is dedicated to James T. Hurd, James A. Woodard, Myron H. Clark and Louis P. Reuther, a Committee on Printing and Finance, who assumed the obligation to pay all bills for printing and expenses; without this generous act on their part the probabilities are the History of the Town of Elma would never have been printed.
