Description

Excerpt from Journal of Captain Henry Dearborn in the Quebec Expedition, 1775

Sullivan's expedition against the Indians in the interior Of New York, in 1779; and the other, that Of Arnold's treason. So far as I have seen them, these jour nals, with one exception, are in Dearborn's handwriting. The exception is the journal which follows. But that it passed under his eye is evident from several additions and corrections from his own hand, that are indicated in the footnotes to the text. Dearborn was a man of some education and of great intelligence. He usually expressed his thoughts in good English, and could commit them to paper with accuracy and in a good handwriting. These facts beget a doubt whether I should have followed the vagaries of the copyist in orthography, punctuation, and the use of capital letters. But I have done so with fidelity, even to the omis sion of Obvious words, so far as a twofold comparison of the copy with the text would secure an exact transcript of the journal. - M. C.
