The Mysteries of Tobacco : With an Introductory Letter Addressed to the Hon. John Quincy Adams, L. L. D (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The Mysteries of Tobacco: With an Introductory Letter Addressed to the Hon. John Quincy Adams, L. L. D When I consented to comply with the request of my excellent friend, the author of this volume, to write an Introduction to his treatise, it seemed proper to cast it in the epistolary form, and in a familiar way, to inscribe it to some honored name, that might command the homage of the nation. And regarding the highest sense of fitness and pro priety, we were not long in the selection. That any well-meant and well-done attempt to benefit mankind, would obtain your favor, we well knew and that many will read this volume for your sake, who might otherwise omit the duty, we thought more than probable: hence the liberty we take.
