Excerpt from The Life and Adventures of Obadiah Benjamin Franklin Bloomfield, M. D: A Native of the United States of America, Now on the Tour of Europe; Interspersed With Episode, and Remarks, Religious, Moral, Public Spirited, and Humorous

I Present to the American public the first volume of the life and adventures of a particular friend. It is a production which has little more than eccentricities and good humour to recommend it. Of this the author is fully aware. He has made a feeble effort to imitate the manner of Sterne, which has afforded such general gratification. But he is fearful that he has approached with more success to the faults than to the beauties of that author.

The eloquence, the pathetic sentiment, and strange humour of Sterne, give a gloss to his defects which robs them of their real character. If the morality and religious reflections which are involved in this production, should effect a similar influence, both my friend and self will have reason to be satisfied with the event of our enterprise. If we should fail, our consciences at least will repose in the purity of our intentions.

The author entertains some doubt and solicitude, lest some passages might be esteemed indelicate, and produce offence. But the proprietor feels that the work is wholly impregnable on this score.
