In the compilation of these sketches, recourse was necessarily and frequently had to such published authorities as yielded the description of information I sought. I have had frequent occasion to profit by the details of works of this character; but in no case have I knowingly done so, without making the usual marginal reference. Should any instance to the contrary be discovered, however, I hope it will be attributed to inadvertence rather than to design. From this general acknowledgment, I must, however, make an exception in favor of Judge Johnson''s Life of Gen. Greene, to which work I am indebted for much and valuable inform ation regarding Gen. Morgan''s connection with the military operations in the South, during the years 1780 and 1781. The assistance I derived from Judge Henry''s narrative, in describing Morgan''s sufferings and services during the memorable expedition to and assault upon Quebec, and from Gen. Wilkinson''s memoirs, in giving his participation in the campaign which terminated with the surrender at Saratoga, also deserve especial notice.
I will now close by declaring that if the result should prove in any degree an acceptable offering to the memory of the man whose life and services it purports to record, and whose fame it essays to preserve, I shall feel myself amply rewarded.
