Excerpt from The Life of a Book Agent There are several motives which have actuated me in the preparation of the following sketch; among the first of which may be mentioned a sincere desire to serve the public, by warn ing them against the many errors I have committed. A calm, quiet review of my life, discloses the fact that, in many instances, my conduct has been in uenced by passion alone, and that the consequences owing therefrom have, in every instance, proven to be the most painful. To enable the young and inexperienced to avoid, as far as possible, the rocks and shoals upon which my bark made shipwreck, is one of the objects of this publication. Another object is, that the world may be informed, so far as is in my power, of the real character of those (many of whom are still living, and will read this work) who have so foully wronged and ill-treated me. I say this in no spirit of revenge that is a feeling which has long since died out in my bosom but because I regard it as a matter of duty, not only to myself, but to those with whom they may be hereafter brought in con tact. The world is full enough of misery and sorrow, caused by man's treachery and wrong; and if I can in any degree, how ever small, check this torrent, I shall feel myself abundantly re paid for all the time and labor the effort may cost me.
