Summary (extracted citations)

'Many people read a little in the preface, before they buy the book; and I shall probably be accused of being in the interest of the Bookseller, and of making an assertation merely to catch this sort of readers, when I say that the English have more need of information on the real character and condition of the United States of America, than any other poeple of Europe'.


Preface is from the Dublin reprint of the 1792 London edition.
