    Excerpt from Prominent Features of a Northern Tour

    The author, sensible of the barbarous style in which this narrative is written, has had it printed merely to gratify his acquaintances, to whom, only, it can be interesting. But should it be read by others, they are enjoined not to criticise the composition; or the anomalies, monotonies, prolixities, pleonisms, tautologies, and solecisms, with which it abounds; and which the writer has neither learning nor abilities to expunge.

    As much as I have here written of the whole, might be said of each village I was in; but I have told others such things, only, as I would others should have told me, before I went to sec for myself.

    The topographical remarks may appear obscure to some persons, but they must bear in mind, that the author has not chosen a title, which proposes teaching geography.

    While on this tour, I travelled with, and saw many persons of distinction, from various parts of the union; but as few individuals like to be made conspicuous, I have named those only, who have often had the eyes of Argus upon them.

    A logician has said, "He that sends a book into the light, desires it to be read, and lie that throws a book into the fire, sends it into the light:" I have neither sent nor thrown mine into the fire, (though I were very near doing so,) nor would I ask aid from a subscriber, to save it from oblivion; and I leave the reader to conclude as he pleases, whether I desire it to be - or not to be - read. "The words of" the author "are ended."
