Excerpt from The History of Myself and My Friend, Vol. 1 of 4: A Novel

But though my. Principal incitements to take up the (pen were those above stated, yet I must do myself the Just1ce to say, that they were not the sole ones. I was besides actuated by strong feelings of philanthropy, and an earnest desire of contributing towards the entertainment of the public.

I had once proposed giving my work the title of confessions, sincel thought that the confessions OF samuel danville would look extremely well in a title page, and that is a very im portant consideration in composing a book. Besides, as I have confessed that a desire of notoriety is one of my lead ing motives in commencing Author, this title seemed particularly appropriate. On reflecting, however, more deeply, it seemed to me that the days of confes sions were gone by that the present are rather the days of lives andhi stories and I am well aware that an Author who writes from the pure love of fame, must study the prevailing fashions of the day, and even sacrifice to them, if necessary, the look of his title page. I have therefore preferred giving my work the title of a history.
