Excerpt from The Green Mountain Boys: A Historical Tale of the Early Settlement of Vermont
The following pages are intended to embody and illus trate a portion of the more romantic incidents Which actually occurred in the early settlements of Vermont, With the use of but little more fiction, than was deemed sufficient to weave them together, and impart to the tissue a connected interest. In doing this, the author has ventured, for the sake of more unity of design, upon one or two anachronisms; or, in other words he has brought together, or nearly so, some incidents connected With the portions of the two difierent periods em braced in the work, Viz., the New York controversy and I the Revolution - Which occurred at intervals. Other than this, he is sensible of no violations of historical truth. With out consulting, as perhaps he should, the models to be found in the works of approved writers in this department of litera ture, he has endeavored to give a true delineation of the man ners and feelings of those among Whom the scene is laid, to gether With the deeds and characters of some of the leading actors in the events he has attempted to describe, as gathered from the imperfect published histories of the times, from the private papers to Which he has had access and more partien larly from the lips of the few aged relics of that period Who actively participated in the Wild and stirring scenes Which peculiarly marked the settlement of this part of the country. How far he has succeeded in the attempt it is for the public.
