Excerpt from The Portland Sketch Book

The object of the Portland Sketch-Book, is to collect in a small compass, literary specimens from such authors as have a just claim to be styled Portland writers. The list might have been extended to a much greater length, had all been included who have made our city a place of transient residence; but no writer has a place in this volume who is not, or has not been, a citizen of Portland, either by birth or a long residence. Therefore, all the names contained in these pages are emphatically those of Portland authors. Among those who were actually born here and either wholly, or in part educated here, will be found the following names, most of which are already known to the world of literature.

S. B. Beckett - James Brooks - William Cutter - Charles S. Daveis - Nathaniel Deering - P. H. Greenleaf - Charles P. Ilsley - Joseph Ingraham - Geo. W. Light - Henry W. Longfellow - Grenville Mellen - Frederick Mellen - Isaac McLellan, Jr. - John Neal - Elizabeth Smith - William Willis - N. P. Willis.
