These notes would not be possible without extensive help from many people and organizations.  The Berwick Academy, Coe College, the Old Berwick Historical Society, the Jewett-Eastman Memorial Committee, the Portsmouth Atheneum, the South Berwick Public Library, and others provided material and intellectual support and facilities.  Members of the Old Berwick Historical Society, especially Tim and Karen Benoit, Rick Coughlin, Brad Fletcher, Norma Keim, Wendy Pirsig, and Nancy and Gary Wetzel, also provided material and intellectual support.  The Soceity for the Preservation of New England Antiquities, in the persons of Martha Sulya and Jan Harney, helped with the research.  Travis Feltman became my researcher on the French setting and characters.  Graham Frater has done wonderful research and photography for the British settings.  Many others are unnamed here, though their names may be seen scattered among the various notes where they made special contributions.  What is best about these materials I owe to these good friends and partners.
