Su questo libro:
Fellow Citizens: Being assembled here to commemorate the centennial anniversary of our National Independence, let us hope, that without regard to denominations, class, party, or distinctive orders, you all can cheerfully and heartily participate in so common a purpose.
Pursuent to the task to me assigned by your committee, and in comformity to a resolution of Congress and the recommendation of the President of the United States and the Governor of your State, it has been made my duty, on this occasion, to present you a brief historical sketch of Boone county.
The limits allotted for this, will admit of nothing more than a mere outline historical compendium. You can hardly expect or desire anything more. I shall be compelled to omit many events and incidents and much of the facts and details which should properly be included in a complete history of your county.
From the great amount of materials constituting the history of the county, I shall aim to select such portions only, as may seem most appropriate for the occasion, expecting you to make due allowance for the omission of much that is of interest.
While the history of pioneer life, the varied, rough hewed events attending the first settlements, as well as the growth and subsequent prosperity of any country, must ever be attractive and entertaining, that of our own county lies so near us, and is so modern and homely, that around it is thrown no false glory, calculated to lend any fanciful enchantment to the view, or robe the story in romantic hue. Our theme bears us over no unvoyagable space, nor yet, does it lie within the star dust realm of inventive imagination. It is real and substantial, and as homely as home itself. It pertains to a subject positively palpable, to real terra jirma; or, if you object to that, we will say, it pertains to what was once a humid wilderness of deep forests, wild Indians, wild animals, and much wet marshy land, which subsequently became the abode of civilization, accompanied with great improvements, and has been the scene of much toil, great industry, many hardships and great achievements.
Such is our theme; it is a plain unpathetic story, unadorned by any foreign romance or brilliant fiction.
