Excerpt from Forest and Shore: Or Legends of the Pine-Tree State

It certainly was not the intention of the author, when writing the stories contained in this volume, to give them to the public in the present shape. Written under the pressure of manifold duties, the most that he anticipated for them was a brief newspaper immortality - a passing notice and oblivion. Much to his surprise, however, many of them have continued to float on the current of popular favor; and by the advice, repeatedly received, not only from friends but strangers, he has been induced to make the present collection.

The tales, it will be perceived, are mostly of a traditionary character, although some of them must be received with liberal grains of allowance.
