The Army Correspondence of Colonel John Laurens in the Years 1777-8: Now First Printed from Original Letters Addressed to His Father, Henry Laurens (Classic Reprint) by Wm Gilmore Simms (Paperback / softback, 2015)
Excerpt from The Army Correspondence of Colonel John Laurens in the Years 1777-8: Now First Printed From Original Letters Addressed to His Father, Henry Laurens Under this designation, a few gentlemen, interested in the study of American History and Literature, propose occasionally to print limited editions of such manuscripts and scarce pamphlets as may be deemed of value towards illustrating these subjects. They will seek to obtain for this purpose unpublished journals or correspondence containing matter worthy of record, and which may t properly be included in the Historical Collections or Documentary Histories of the several States. Such unpretending contemporary chronicles often throw precious light upon the motives of action and the imperfectly narrated events of bygone days; perhaps briefly touched upon in dry official documents. The Club may also issue fac-similes of curious manuscripts or documents worthy of tice, which, like the printed issues, will bear its imprint. These are the Registers, the chronicles of the age They were written in, and speak the truth of History Better than a hundred of your printed Communications. - Shakerly Marmyon's Antiquary.
