Excerpt from The Crayon Miscellany
Since such, however, seems to be the desire Of the public, and that they take sufficient interest in my wanderings to deem them worthy Of recital, I have hastened, as promptly as possible, to meet in some degree, the expectation which others have excited. For this purpose, I have, as it were, plucked a few leaves out Of my memorandum book, containing a month's foray beyond the outposts Of human habitation, into the wilderness Of the Far West. It forms, indeed, but a small portion Of an extensive tour; but it is an episode, complete as far as it goes. As such, I offer it to the public, with great difiidence. It is a simple narrative Of every day occurrences; such as happen to every one who travels the prairies. I have no wonders to describe, nor any movmg accidents by ﬂood or field to narrate; and as to those who look for a marvellous or adventurous story, at my hands, I can only reply in the words of the weary knife-grinder: Story!
