Excerpt from Historical Pictures of the Middle Ages, in Black and White, Vol. 1 of 2: Made on the Spot, From Records in the Archives of Switzerland

Lecteur, qui que tu sois, qui verras ce recuëïl,
Daigne lui accorder un favorable accueil:
Veuille, par un motif de donce complaisance,
User, à son égard, de ta condescendance,
Et, mettant de côté son imperfection,
Regarder seulement la bonne intention
De celuy qui l'a fait, qui, pour sa récompense,
N'exige rien de toi, sinon de l'indulgence;
Car, il n'a employé le temps de son loisir,
Qu'en vue simplement de te faire plaisir,
Et non point à dessein de briguer un suffrage,
Bien ou mal mérité, pour son petit ouvrage.

Excerpt from Historical Pictures of the Middle Ages, in Black and White, Vol. 1 of 2: Made on the Spot, From Records in the Archives of Switzerland A preface is usually so seldom read, and generally so little wanted, that the author of this work long hesitated as to the propriety of appending one. The re?ection, however, that it was ushered into the world under the title of History, at length decided her to point out explicitly the abundant sources whence the materials were drawn, lest it might be supposed th at these pictures were, in reality, nothing more than a few leading facts laid down to form a superstructure for a fabric of fiction. All the prin cipal details of the Huns War, more especially liable to suspicion from the dramatic character of its incidents, will be found in Wiirstisen s Great Ger man Chronicle of Basle, published scarcely one hun dred years afterwards, when the events narrated were yet in the memory of many aged persons, by whom they were transmitted to posterity, both orally and by writing A. Short notice of this famous cloisteral dispute may also be met with in the eleventh volume of the Conservateur Suisse, a periodical publication.
