THE REV. J. R. C.
The kind and disinterested manner in which you have furnished the materials of the following tale merits a public acknowledgment. As your reluctance to appear
before the world, however, imposes a restraint, you must receive such evidence of gratitude as your own prohibition will allow.
Notwithstanding there are so many striking and deeply interesting events in the early history of those from whom you derive your being, yet are there hundreds of other families in this country, whose traditions, though less accurately and minutely preserved than the little narrative you have submitted to my inspection, would supply the materials of many moving tales. You have every reason to exult in your descent, for surely, if any man may claim to be a citizen and a proprietor in the Union, it is one that, like yourself, can point to a line of ancestors whose origin is lost in the obscurity of time. You are truly an American. In your eyes, we of a brief century or two, must appear as little more than denizens quite recently admitted to the privilege of a residence. That you may continue to enjoy peace and happiness in that land where your fathers so long flourished, is the sincere wish of your obliged friend,
