In presenting this volume of documents to the public, the publishers are induced to hope that its execution will give satisfaction to its numerous patrons, and be considered worthy of the important matter it contains. More matter has been compressed into the work, than was promised in the Prospectus, and as the messages have in every case, been copied from the official documents of Congress, their correctness may be coufidently relied on.
The biography of Jackson is necessarily short, and assumes no higher character, than that of a brief and humble compilation. To abler hands we leave the task of sketching the life and character of Andrew Jackson, and raising still higher the monument of his renown, for which his biographers have laid so broad a foundation.
This volume, such as it is, we submit to a generous community, who have already given an earnest of their liberality-trusting that while the friends of General Jackson, will carefully peruse it, as a memorial of that distinguished individual—his enemies will feel whatever of excitement may have existed in their minds against him, removed by a candid perusal of its pages,
Concord, Jan. 10, 1837.
