Excerpt from The Orthoptera of New England: Designed for the Use of the Students in the Massachusetts Agricultural College and the Farmers of the State

The insects belonging to the order Orthoptera are almost with out exception injurious to our cultivated crops, our forest and shade trees, or become a nuisance in our houses, and therefore demand the careful attention of the student of agriculture and the practical farmer.

It has been our aim to present the subject in as simple a manner as possible, and as free from difficult terms as is consistent with scientific accuracy, so that any intelligent farmer may be able to determine any orthopterous insects he may find destroying his crops, and learn what means have been suggested for their destruction or for holding them in check. To give completeness to the work, all the New England species are here described, the greater part of them having already been found within the limits of the State of Massachusetts.

In the preparation of this work I have made free use of the writings of others, especially the works of Sta], Saussure and Scudder. In fact, any work on the North American Orthoptera must be based more or less on the writings of Mr. Scudder, our highest authority on this order, whether recent or fossil, and to this gentleman I am indebted more than I can well express for personal assistance in this work. All errors and erroneous con elusion's must be laid to my charge, and not to any advice from him. I am also under obligations to Profs. A. S. Packard and C. V. Riley for illustrations, as well as to Mrs. Tenney for illustra tions from Tenney's Natural History.
