PREFACE TO THE SECOND EDITION.
THE favor with which this work has been received, even with ale its typographical errors, and its uninviting dress, has induced the author to offer another and revised edition to the public, who have done his
poor efforts so unexpected and, as he fears, undeserved an honor. The materials of the work, consisting of veritable incident, coliected from original sources, were undoubtedly good; and the author can only regret that they were not wrought up with an ability corresponding to their richness. He would gladly make several alterations in the work, particularly in the appellation of one of the most conspicuous personages, CHARLES WARRINGTON, whose prototype was intended to be the chivalrous Colonel SETH WARNER, whom he always regretted he had not introduced, like ALLEN, BAKER, MRS. Story, and other historical characters, under his own name. this, and other like alterations could not be made without somewhat varying the construction of the whole Tale, he has concluded to present it, with the exception of corrections and a few additional notes in the original form.
