Letters From the Woods
Excerpt from Letters From the Woods: Editorial Correspondence, Random Rhymes, From 20 to 70, Annual AddressesAn explanation is sometimes equivalent to an apology, and therefore not out of place in this opening page. The original intention was the printing of a few copies of this little book for private distribution only. But through an outside suggestion (we must confess not requiring much pressure), a larger edition was decided upon.These sketches, the work of moments of leisure from confining business occupations, and from larger relief during a few day's sojourn in the outer world, where Nature in comparative solitude, sublime and beautiful in its grand adornments, invites the admiring and reverent gaze - were written only for a timely use, to be buried with it. That they reappear in this form, can find no more plausible excuse than to fall back upon an old plea, that Age grows garrulous - that the veteran, looking back to the sterner conflicts of his life assignments, finds delight in "fighting his battles over," and peaceful mortals who have survived their usefulness are prone to think, what is of mastering memory to themselves of the past must possess interest to others, and plead at least, in the words of higher authority, that "a book is a book although there is nothing in it.""Letters from the Woods" are portrayals of what the Adirondacks were a third of a century ago, when that now frequented and greatly traveled section of our State was almost a ferra incognita, to be reached only by long foot tramps. All this has been wonderfully changed through the agency of steam transit and the speed of daily coaches in all directions, furnishing facility of access, and carrying with them all the conveniences and comforts of the most popular fashionable resorts.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
