PREFACE.

The following chapters are devoted mainly to facts and incidents connected with the development of anti slavery politics from the year 1840 to the close of the work of Reconstruction which followed the late civil war. Other topics, however, are occasionally noticed, while I have deemed it proper to state my own attitude and course of action respecting various public questions, and to refer more particularly to the political strifes of my own State. In doing this, I have spoken freely of conspicuous personalities in connection with their public action, or their peculiar relations to myself; but my aim has been to deal fairly and state only the truth, while striving to weave into my story some reminiscences of the men and events of by gone times, which may interest the reader. In the endeavor to elucidate the orderly progress of anti slavery opinions and their translation into organized action, I have summarized and re stated many of the familiar facts of current American politics during the period embraced; but I hope I have also made a slight contribution to the sources of history bearing upon a world famous movement, touching which we should “gather up the fragments that nothing be lost.”
