He events related in the following pages, naturally became a frequent subject of conversation with

my children and my friends. They felt so much satisfaction at the accounts which I gave them, that they repeatedly urged me to commit the whole to paper; and their affectionate partiality induced them to suppose, that the narrative would be, not only agreeable to them, but inieresting to the public. - In complying with their solicitaiions; I'am far from being confident that the success of my efforts will justify their hopes : I trust, however, that too much will nat be expected, in regard to literaryi composition, from a person whose life has been principally devoted to the duties of a soldier and the service of his country....and that a scrupulous adherence to truth, will compensate for many blemishes in style and arrangement.
