Excerpt from An Iron-Bound City, Vol. 1 of 2: Or, Five Months of Peril and Privation

The Preface here differs from that I set before the opening volume of the series of Leaves from my Life, inasmuch as I sit down to write a portion of it without having begun the work. The last was the result of a casual afterthought: this is the inspiration of malice prepense.

I know not what the coming book may turn out to be - so much depends on accident beyond personal control; nor whether its introduction should take the form of apology or self-applause. That will be for the critics to determine. If I lower in merit, the blame is theirs. They have spoiled me. Possibly some have hinted faults without going the length of expressing absolute dislike, have given me sly punctures without venturing on a cruel stab.
