Excerpt from Poems of Men and Events

I had devised a publication of all my verses; but upon arraying them for this edition, with its limited page-type, found that the printer's nicety had overreached me, and I believed that my noble friends, the subscribers, would be better satisfied with a selection of representative compositions than with quantity. I therefore omitted the Poems in my book of 1875, and those published in Tales of the Chesapeake, and Bohemian Days, and Poetical Addresses, and set to the front my latest pieces, not till now published, and added to them particular reproductions bearing out the title of this book, or in line with my present preferences and ideas. Forty-three years have gone by since I printed my earliest verse. Al though the newspapers have been my bulrushes, holding me up, Poesy has been Pharaoh's daugh ter, raising me.
