Excerpt from A Treatise on Roads, Their History, Character, and Utility: Being the Substance of Two Lectures Delivered Before the Young Men's Association of the City of Albany

The writer of this, having been struck with the importance of giving that class of internal improvements, called roads, a due share of public consideration, at a time when so many projects are on foot, some of them addressed to the cupidity of speculation, others to advance the common welfare, recently attempted to investigate the subject, and to form some general opinions of its history, and characteristics.

No where could this information be obtained in the desired shape. And it was only after long and laborious researches that the scanty facts were obtained which form the groundwork of this little treatise.
