Excerpt from Fifty Years With the Gun and Rod: Including Tables Showing the Velocity, Distance, Penetration or Effect of Shot, Calculated by Leonard Case, Esq., Gun Trials, by the Chicago Field; How and Where to "Hold," Etc

Besides, he can steal and plagiarize to his heart's content, from all his brilliant neighbors, and only give them credit in his preface. The wily critic will soon discover the brilliant and useful extracts (showing the author's good sense) uncredited, and will come down on him like a buzzard on a mourning d0ve, and charge him before all the world with the plagiarism.

This is just what was expected. When the sharp critic has worked up the whole country into a savage and unrelenting disgust, and made things ripe to send the guilty culprit into pluto or oblivion, he turns the tables on his enemy by triumphantly referring to his preface. There due credit is given to all. The criminal is acquitted in a blaze of glory. He has the public sympathy as a martyr. The just and generous public knew all the time he was not a common thief and, priding themselves on their sound sagacity, they summarily squelch the crest-fallen critic, and - buy the book.
