Excerpt from The Rifle, Axe, and Saddle-Bags, and Other Lectures

IT has come to be somewhat common for new writers to get their books introduced to the world by other hands. The prae tice is not a commendable one; certainly, at least, it requires strong justification in the character of the book, in the circum stances Of the author, or in the relations of both to the public.

The present case affords such justification to an ample extent, as the reader who will follow me through a few pages, will freely admit.
