Excerpt from Life and Adventures of Lewis Wetzel: The Renowned Virginia Rancher and Scout; Comprising a Thrilling History of This Celebrated Indian Fighter, With His Perilous Adventures and Hair-Breadth Escapes, and Including Other Interesting Incidents of Border-Life; Largely Compiled From Authentic Rec In the preparation of this work, the author has had peculiar advantages. He has had access to a large collection of Miscellanies touching on early border times. He has had the opportunity of consulting rare authors on frontier life and warfare. He has derived considerable aid, in the disposition of his materials, from former writers on various subjects connected with the life and manners of our early Western settlers. He has also enjoyed a large acquaintance among those who are directly or remotely the descendants of the Wetzel family, and especially among the descendants of those who lived at the time when the hero of this work lived, or at the places he frequented. He has, therefore, been enabled, in many cases, to verify the truth of incidents which he found in books by these oral traditions, and in other instances he has carefully collated traditional reports with these written records. But the author has had frequent occasion to congratulate himself on the possession of family documents in the form of diaries, or letters, written at the time. These private records give an idea of the times they were written in in that naive and simple style which pertains to all writings meant primarily but for the owner's eye, or those of his near friends. He has violated no confidence with these manuscripts; but, in several instances, he has been induced to quote, in the very language of the memoirs, certain portions specially bearing upon the subject in hand, and in many more he has given the substance.
