Every chronicle of manners has a certain value. When customs are connected with principles, in their origin, development, or end, such records have a double importance; and it is because we think we see such a connection between the facts and incidents of the Littlepage Manuscripts, and certain important theories of our own time, that we give the former to the world. It is perhaps a fault of your professed historian, to refer too much to philosophical agencies, and too little to those that are humbler. The foundations of great events, are often remotely laid in very capricious and uncalculated passions, motives, or impulses. Chance has usually as much to do with the fortunes of states, as with those of individuals; or, if there be calculations connected with them at all, they are the calculations of a power superior to any that exists in man.

About the Author:

James Fenimore Cooper (1789-1851) was a famed nineteenth century American author known for his work in fiction particularly sea stories and historical novels and politics. He enrolled in Yale University, never earned a degree but later joined the United States Navy. Some of his most famous works include Last of the Mohicans, A Letter to my Countymen, and Ned Myers' or A Life before the Mast.

Review:

Satanstoe (1845) is perhaps Cooper s best novel after the Leatherstocking Tales. The pastoral picture it gives of colonial life, particularly among the Dutch settlers at Albany, reminds one of The Pioneers. Marius Bewley, The Eccentric Design: Form in the Classic American Novel
Much of the time in this charming book, Satanstoe, which George Sand thought one of his best, Cooper is on holiday from his more strenuous ideas. Taking advantage of this point of view as a pre-Revolutionary New Yorker, he enjoys living in the cozy province that speaks so warmly of England as home and trusts the mother country unhesitatingly, certain of her superior wisdom and ability. James Grossman, James Fenimore Cooper"
