The work is dedicated ot the household and the library of the poor. It is inscribed to the father, the mother, the son, and daughter of the American family. If father, mother, son, and daughter shall love their country better--if they shall understand more clearly and appreciate more fully the founding, progress, and growth of liberty in the New World--the author will be abundantly repaid"--Preface
