Old Times in West Tennessee

Excerpt from Old Times in West Tennessee: Reminiscences Semi-Historic of Pioneer Life and the Early Emigrant Settlers in the Big Hatchie Country This book is prefaced by its title page, requiring but little to be said as to the design of the writer, or his motives for writing it. It is hardly necessary for the author to put in a disclaimer that he assumes to be neither a historiographer nor a biographer, much less an annalist; semi-historic, irregular and defective, if you will, is the only title he claims for it. Whether it be accorded or not, it is none the less true that "every man has his own style, as he has his 'own nose;' and it is neither polite nor Christian to rally a man about his nose, however singular it may be" - a fact pregnant with homely sense, and commends itself to the exercise of charity on the part of the critical reader. Conceived when gout most troubled, and born of necessity, it was written when afflicted with physical pain, amply recompensed, however, in the pleasurable interest it gave in reviving the scenes and recollections of his boyhood days. Should the reader derive a tithe of the interest in reading that was afforded in writing, the author will be doubly recompensed.
