Excerpt from My New Home in Northern Michigan: And Other Tales
HE average reader of those kind of books that are mainly founded on the personality of the writer, are apt to be curiously inclined to know something of the private history of the one who thus ventures publicly before them as a claimant to their favorable consideration. There is generally a feeling of sympathy with such reader toward such author, which strengthens with the progress of perusal, until it ripens into the desire of a more minute knowledge of the outer and inner life of him who has so interested them.
Knowing that this little book, the child of my later years, will be kindly received and welcomed by a large number of men, and a far greater number of women - the latter always permitting the flood of sympathy, in which eddies the worth less driftwood of sentiment, to overflow the shallower depths of the brain - I proceed at once to unlock myself to all such as may be under the suggestions of curiosity, or the promptings of interest, for a glance or a stare at the elephant, as he swings his inky trunk through the coming pages.
