PERRIN’S HISTORY

I’m now the proud owner of William Henry Perrin’s History of Alexander, Union and Pulaski Counties.  The book weighs about 10 pounds. I love the biographical sketches. The writing can be a little quaint, but so what. It’s an essential addition to any southern Illinois history library.  Another essential, in my mind, is Mrs. P.T. Chapman’s History of Johnson County, Illinois. It’s not a very heavy volume – but pound for pound, it was more expensive than Perrin.
