Excerpt from Historic and Antiquarian Scenes in Brooklyn and Its Vicinity: With Illustrations of Some of Its Antiquities

During the progress of some extended investigations into the Revolutionary History of Long Island, many interesting incidents presented themselves, not entirely conforming to the narrow outline of a plan adopted for a larger work. These were acquired from source, which intitled them to a fair degree of credit; had never been published, and cost a certain amount of labor in preparation and examination, which made me loth to throw them entirely aside. Many of them were in some form prepared by me for the Brooklyn Manual, though since corrected and extended by additional particulars.

While tradition and fugitive documents are not always trustworthy foundations for history, they still possess in their details an attractive interest, scarcely second to that which we yield to its more dignified relation. The present collection forms but a small portion of the mass of material obtained, much of which consists of the personal narratives of citizens of our Island, whose pens have preserved numerous details of a period in our history, which will probably never cease to attract our absorbing interest.
