PREFACE.- DEDICATION.

I HATE Prefaces. I hate Dedications. Enough for the one to say, that here is an American story; that the child of Logan was an American; that he was brave, wicked, and miserable, and that he and I are descendants from LOGAN the Mingo CHIEF. And for the other, the DEDICATION, I have just about as much, and no more to say.

I do not dedicate my book to any body; for I know nobody worth dedicating it to. I have no friends, no children, no wife, nu home;- no relations, no well-wishers;nobody to love, and nobody to care for. To whom shall I; to whom can I dedicate it? To my Maker! It is unworthy of him. To my countrymen? They are unworthy of me. For the men of past ages I have very little veneration; for those of the present, none at all. To whom shall I entrust it? Who will care for me, by to-morrow? Who will do battle for my book, when I am gone? Will posterity? Yea, posterity will do me justice. To posterity then-to tne winds! - I bequeath it! I devote it-as a Roman would his enemy, to the fierce and unsparing charities of another world to a generation of spirits—to the shadowy and crowned potentates of hereafter: -I-I have done the blood of the red man is growing cold-farewell--farewell forever!
