Excerpt from An Historical Address: Delivered at the Annual Meeting of the Village Library Company of Farmington, Connecticut, September 14, 1904 Two hundred years ago, that is, on the 14th day of September, 1704, this town had existed sixty-four years. Its polity, whether civil, ecclesiastical, or social, had become firmly settled. Its inhabitants were loyal subjects of good Queen Anne, voted every year for Major-General Fitz-John Winthrop for governor, and for John Hooker, Esq., and the "Worshipful Captain John Hart" for deputies, stood stoutly to their own opinions in matters ecclesiastical, and lived the lives of prosperous farmers. Geographically considered, the town was a rectangle fifteen miles long from north to south, and eleven broad from cast to west, the Round Hill being the starting point for measurements. With the exception of the main street and a locality next to Simsbury known as Hart's Farm the whole region was the lawful hunting ground of the Tunxis Indians and the home of wild beasts. Wolves were numerous, as were also animals of the wild cat variety, magnified of record into lions and panthers. The reward for their destruction, along with crows, blackbirds, and other objectionable animals, was a fruitful source of revenue to the adventurous youths of the village. Scattered here and there were lands known as " Soldier Lots," given those who had served against the Pequot, together with many broad acres granted the minister, and lesser holdings bestowed upon those who had deserved well of their fellows.

      I think the figure quoted in Quora is the approximate number of "users" and those are unofficial guesses.

    I have built a website for a nonprofit on WIX but am looking for information on hosting reliability before I choose them. Another member of our Board suggests WordPress because it is better established. I am not eager to rebuild the website, but she has a very good point. Anybody have information on how reliable various sites are in their hosting and mail handling?
