Excerpt from Life of Pomeroy Mark M. Pomeroy, ("Brick" Pomeroy, Editor of the Lacrosse, Wis., Democrat, and of the Democrat, Daily, New York City), A Representative Young Man of America: His Early History, Character, and Public Services in Defence of the Rights of States, Rights of the People, and Interests of Working Men Letters clearly and truly present his feelings and thoughts, and were designed to produce conviction in the minds of those to whom addressed. They contain nothing not consistent with truth, and which had not been freely and fully communicated to those with whom he mingled in an unrestrained intercourse. He never said, or did, or wrote anything concerning public affairs which he wished to conceal from the public. There are few thoughts, if any, contained in one now given, which he had not, at some time, freely communicated to the Author, and others about him, without an inj unction of secrecy. We think it due to his reputation and our readers to give his letters as we found them, as best calculated to show the man as he really was. It is not in the studied expressions of those laboriously prepared for the public that the real man is to be found. But in those rapidly dashed off for the eye of friends, whose criticisms never have stings. With very few exceptions, every letter given was written to trusted friends, and not for the public, and are there fore the more valuable. They will be found between chapters where they do not constitute a separate one, in the order of date. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
