TO THE READER.
PART of the sketches contained in this book, were originally published in the Indianapolis Daily Journal, edited by Berry R. Sulgrove, Esq., and were extensively re-published by other papers in most of the States; these have been revised and corrected by the author. Many of the sketches, all the letters, and part of the poems, have never been published before. Each sketch is complete and requires the reading of nothing previous to understand it.
