A book to be opened at any page- but in that page the reader should find incident or reminiscence to excite interest.Our bending author hath pursued his storyIn a little room confining mighty men.So runs the couplet printed on the title page.The author doth indeed bend, to the storm of criticism he is likely to incur for so orderless a book.But the little room, the book, slight as it is, does confine mighty men- how many famous men, and famous women whom I have met, appear in its pages- what a wealth of noted historic incidents, that give occasion for gossip from intimate observation- and the gossips range from the deepest thought to the flippant pun.
