"The manuscript from which this pamphlet is printed was found among papers of the late Kinsley [i.e. Kingsley] Carpenter, Esq., who died in 1859, at the advanced age of 98 years. According to a memorandum in the manuscript, it was 'penned from memory, ' and bears the date of January 17, 1771"--Page [3].
"There has been 7 houses and 1-2, built in a year on an average for 22 years last past, besides ware-houses, shops, barns, &c. N.B. There is, no doubt, some errors in the foregoing acc't, as the author pen'd it by strength of memory, without patroling the streets to count the buildings. January 17th, 1771"--Page 25.
The manuscript (now in the Sidney S. Rider Collection, John Hay Library, Brown University) is unsigned. Rider's printed title page prefixed to it states that it was "compiled by Kinsley Carpenter". If so, it could not have been the work of the Kingsley Carpenter who died in 1859, who was 8 years old in January 1771--though this attribution has previously been made by some cataloging agencies--but of his uncle Kingsley Carpenter, born in 1748, whose purpose it must have been to document the growth of Providence during the 22 years of his life.
Includes wood engraving of "The Whipple house, as it appeared in 1676", and "Map of Providence in 1676."
