Descrizione

Some writers seem to think they should epitomize their entire works in their preface; others seem to think they ought to strip themselves of every good quality and attribute they possess, in order to approach, in all humbleness and humility, the great public; whilst others are meaner still - they mortify themselves, and absolutely do penance for sins they never committed, in order to induce that many-headed tyrant to throw them a kind word. Our design in writing the following pages was to bring together various materials belonging to, and connected with, the rise and progress of Bandon from its earliest infancy, without heeding whether the narration of a fact exposed the faults or offended the prejudices of any person or of any party. Accordingly, we set to work. Our first intention was to produce a mere compilation - one in which the scissors should perform the duty of the pen; but, as we advanced with our task, we found it impossible to adhere closely to that arrangement. Amongst other reasons, there is many an incident or a circumstance, which, without any reference to the cause which produced it, or the subject with which it was identified, would be totally unintelligible, and consequently inappreciable by the reader.
