Overview

Excerpt from The Ohio Valley in Colonial Days

A reviewer of "The Family: An Historical and Social Study," published a few years ago, criticised this volume in the following words: "Perhaps the greatest lack of this book is a preface, for the merit of a compilation of this sort depends upon the end aimed at and the method followed."

The writer of the following pages desires to obviate such criticisms and to assist the above reviewer in what is evidently his practice of reviewing, namely to depend on the preface for his idea of the book.

The history of all ages and of all nations offers the most abundant sources for romancing, and many an historian has paid more attention to the picturesque and romantic sides of the questions before him, than to the bare matter of fact. Prescott's "Conquest of Mexico," Abbot's "History of Napoleon," are delightful reading for everybody, but also most unfaithful guides to the earnest historian.
