or opinion, have not crept in and escaped observation. I can only hope --which I do with tolerable confidence that they are very few and far between, and that there are none of material consequence to the value and integrity of the history.

In respect to the general appearance and execution of the work, the volumes will speak for themselves. The enterprising publishers, I may say in their behalf, have zealously labored to secure the best service possible, and to present to the American public a work which, they believe, is unequalled in the spirit and beauty of its illustrations, and the elegance of its typography.

With these brief introductory remarks and statements, the present History of the United States is submitted to the consideration of our countrymen. I shall only venture, as a last word, to express the hope, that the favorable judgment of many friends and fellow-laborers, who have cheered me on with words of kindness during several years of toil, may be confirmed by others into whose hands this work may fall; and that its merits—such as they are—may give it favor in the eyes of all good and true men, and all honest lovers of our highly favored land.
