Excerpt from Dr. J. B: Cranfill's Chronicle; A Story of Life in Texas

When I announced to my good friend Cullen Thomas that I was writing an autobiography, he said, "I should think it would be very interesting - to you!" It has been interesting to me, so I spared him, and it may be, kind reader, that before this recital is done you will wish that I had spared you.

Until I wrote this book I had never talked about myself as much as I wanted to. Every time I have sat down with a friend to talk to him six or seven hours about myself, he has butted in to talk about himself, with the result that I have never until now been allowed to finish the story. Here it is, however, in all it's gorgeous fulness.

This volume, while it contains many sentences written in the lighter vein, has at bottom a serious purpose. While I realize that the publication of an autobiography may suggest that the writer has an unwarranted degree of self-importance, it is nevertheless true that a faithful recital of the incidents of any life, however humbly lived, cannot fail to be invested with a degree of human interest that will be both inspiring and instructive.

While all of this is true, this book would never have been written if it had not been for my desire to record for my children and grandchildren the incidents that follow. I wish my own father, his father, or his father's father, or all three, had written just such a work for me.

Another incentive to the publication of this volume has been that of preserving in permanent form the history of a period of our Texas life that is being rapidly obscured, and unless thus chronicled would soon pass from public view.
