Meet the Author

Not writing to please any particular party, or vindicate any particular set of opinions, the Author has studied the strictest impartiality. He has not covered the imperfection of those men whose lives he has introduced, nor withheld the accusations of their enemies, but stated, without reserve, both their faults and excellencies. He has not spared bigotry or persecution with whomsoever found, nor lauded the sufferers with undeserved praise. His design being to give a clear and candid statement of facts, he has spared no pains in collecting and examining the necessary materials; from which, he flatters himself, he has selected whatever is most curious, useful, or interesting
