As issued in the Magazine, it became apparent, after the appearance of the early portions of the work, that the subject admitted of a much broader treatment than had been intended; and that the introduction of additional matter, covering as much as possible the prominent events of the struggle, would render it more useful both for reference and as a study of the character of Washington, without in any way conflicting with the form of an Itinerary. This plan was accordingly adopted for the subsequent numbers.
The additions, therefore, are principally limited to the first three years of the record as originally published.
As day by day we follow Washington through the pages of the Itinerary, we become more and more impressed -with the earnestness, steadfastness, and truthfulness of his character, and feel assured that to his high sense of duty, and almost sleepless vigilance, we are mainly indebted for the successful issue of the battle for freedom.
History furnishes no finer type of manhood, no purer example of patriotism, than our Washington!
