Description

Excerpt from Spencer Kellogg Brown: His Life in Kansas and His Death as a Spy, 1842-1863; As Disclosed in His Diary This biography was written many years ago, at the request of the editor's venerable friend, the father of Spencer Kellogg Brown. Only recently, through interruption of other work, has opportunity been found to revise and abridge it for publication. The editor believes that the letters and journals embodied in the book have rare value as sketches illustrative of the early history of Kansas and of the conduct of part of the war for the suppression of the rebellion; and that they also exhibit many curious, amusing, and pathetic phases of American life. There are passages in Spencer's journal which will seem to some readers of this story not merely boyish but trivial. The editor regards these as lines indis pensable to the etching of the boy's character, the revelation of which, in its gradual formation, is a. Study as profitable as it is interesting. Very reluctantly, of the materials placed at the editor's disposal by the friends of the subject Of this memoir, much the greater part has been omitted from the work.
