Excerpt from The Carolinians an Old-Fashioned Love Story of Stirring Times in the Early Colony of Carolina
This book was not a deliberate act. I did not choose the subject and then go to work to cram for its execution, as does an undergraduate for his examinations. A wonder story of the old Colonial days in South Carolina fell into my hands one day, and becoming enthused with the spirit of the times, the thought came to me that here was unused and picturesque setting for a tale of the men of brawn and courage who became our forbears in this new land and exercised a noteworthy influence in the development of this nation. The story itself is just a simple love story, hundreds of which were doubtless lived in the old town in the old days regardless of terrors by land and by sea, hundreds of which are doubtless being lived in the old town today just in the old way, though neither pirates nor Indians give the stage setting. Of some of the characters who figure in these pages there are living descendants. To these I would say that I do not pretend to give an actual picture of the private lives of their ancestors.
In narrating the public incidents of their lives wherein they distinguished themselves, I have carefully followed the old records and best established authorities. Their private lives as here depicted are purely fiction.
