make it a burial place, in every respect adapted to the purpose, attractive in its surroundings, and such a resting place for the dead as will be creditable to the taste and Christian cultivation of our city.

The principle upon which the Association is based commends itself to all. No private interest can be subserved, or special privileges allowed in its management. The property is the common property of owners of lots, and the net income or profits from any source, must be applied to the improvement of the grounds and for the common benefit of all.

In the following pages the Trustees have endeavored to give to all interested, full information in regard to the spirit, scope and intention of the organization, and the general principles which will control its management; the proceedings at the dedication of the grounds in September last; a full history of previous efforts of the kind, and a full report of the imposing and deeply impressive exercises upon that occasion.

To give the public full information in regard to the first inception, progress, and history of these grounds, the Trustees combine in this volume a republication of the account of the Cemetery, made in the year 1856, which was prepared under the auspices of its first Board of Trustees.
