The book is written. The difficulties have been very great - almost insuperable. The fires have been exceedingly hot. But the mountain-top is reached. Let the dead past bury its dead. I began this investigation more than twelve years ago. When I first heard the report that Peter S. N ey was probably Marshal Ney I said to myself, It may be true. [would not have shot Stonewall Jackson. I began to make inquiries of those who had been intimately acquainted with Peter S. Ney and whose integrity no one could question. I found that P. S. Ney possessed a strong, clear, vigorous, well-bal ameed mind, and that he was a man of the highest character. From that moment I believed he was Marshal N ey, and now I know it. I am deeply grateful to the many friends who have so nobly aided me in this work of love. I wish I could take each one of them by the hand and express my gratitude in person. I can never forget their kindness. May Heaven''s best blessings be theirs. I am under very especial obligations to the following gentlemen The Rev. Dr. Morgan Dix, rector of Trinity Parish, New York the Rev. Dr. Joseph N. Blanchard, rector of St. J ames''s Parish, Philadelphia; the Rev. Dr. Arthur C.
