Preface.


When I commenced the following sketches I did not expect to publish them.  I visited my old native section in 1857, after an absence of twenty years, and while there the reminiscences of my early years naturally revived, from the influence of that strange but necessary law in man's mental structure, association of ideas, and on my return I concluded to write out some of the scenes and stories of that age and section.  When I had nearly finished them, they were read to some friends, who warmly suggested their publication.  I have consented, and the reader now has them, and will, of course, as one of the sovereigns of the mental world, decide upon their merits.  Long prefaces are not generally read, and I shall say but little in that line.  I hope these "Scenes and Stories" will contribute a mite toward our country's stock of humorous literature.  I choose to conceal my real name, and will be known by the nickname of my boyhood.

"Skitt."

July, 1859
