Excerpt from The American Revolution: Including Also the Beauties of American History
The following Anecdotes were principally selected by a youth of twelve years of age. Having had constant access to a library well supplied with books on History and Biography, he early acquired a taste for reading such works; and the present small volume is one of the results of such an attention to this species of literature. The selection was made at intervals between hours of devotion to elementary and classical study; and may hence be viewed as having been rather an amusement, than a labor of painful toil and research.
The utility of compilations like the present is too well known to require particular commendation. They are always read with avidity, if well made; being usually preferred to the most fascinating kinds of fiction; and what is far more important, they are among the most beneficial books to be found. They almost invariably create a taste for reading history and biography. Good anecdotes in these literary regions are analogous to the precious stones found in the bosom of the earth; which, though sparsely scattered, will long be sought with the most cheerful and untiring assiduity. A single case of success may cheer on the fond and enthusiastic votary of these deeply hid treasures, even for months, amidst nothing but the mere rubbish that contains them.
