Excerpt from Wenlock Christison, and the Early Friends in Talbot County, Maryland: A Paper Read Before the Maryland Historical Society, March 9th, 1874

The paper which follows was originally written as a contribution to a projected History of Talbot county, Maryland. This will account for and perhaps excuse the introduction of so many references to persons, places and events which must possess merely a local interest. These could not have been eliminated from the memoir, when it was to be presented through the Historical Society to a wider public than that for which it was designed, without recasting the whole and rejecting what some may think gives to it its chief value.

The engrafting upon the narrative of the life of the Quaker confessor so much that is purely incidental, relating to the early Friends, renders the essay liable to unfavorable criticism as a symmetrical literary work; but a correction of this very evident fault might, also, impair its value, while it rendered it more artistic. Besides, such correction would be directly contrary to the wishes of the Historical Society as expressed at the time of the reading of the paper.

Whatever claims to originality the memoir possesses are based upon that portion which relates to Wenlock Christison's career as a citizen of Maryland, in Talbot county. Of that part of his life which was spent in New England, and which indeed is the most interesting, the writer of this essay has done little more than glean the incidents scattered here and there in a rather rare and confusedly written book, and arrange them in some kind of order - a task by no means the most easy of accomplishment.
