At the time of his death, January I, 1874, he had accumulated no fewer than ten thousand pages of written material, which covered a great variety of subjects, including Family History and Personal Recollections. This had been the work of his leisure moments for fifty years before his death.
At first my only purpose was to collect and copy from all these sources such items as would make a continuous and complete history of the family. The work of writing I began about two years ago, copying carefully on the type-writer, intending to have the whole beautifully bound for the use of my own children. However, I had not written more than fifty pages, when my brothers and Sisters, seeing my specimen pages, became so much interested in my work that they regretted that my method would result in only a single copy of the book.
