Description

Excerpt from Excursion Through the Slave States: From Washington on the Potomac to the Frontier of Mexico; With Sketches of Popular Manners and Geological Notices

That some of the opinions these inci dents elicited at the time may not be re ceived with the same favour by all those under whose notice they may come, is very likely to be the case; for, in our day, the field of English literature embraces an ex tensive and populous region of America, where sentiments are cherished respecting the rights of men, both black and white, that are diametrically Opposed to them. The author, nevertheless, ventures to sub mit to the candour of those transatlantic readers he may not have the good fortune to please, that in all countries where free dom of opinion is not an illusion, but is reai and substantial, there are acknowledged privileges which every fair writer can claim to-enjoy, amongst the plainest of which are the describing truly what he sees, and the expressing freely, but not presumptuously, his opinions of what he has seen.
