PREFACE.

It is the intention of the author to give the accumulated contents of his portfolio, as well as the casual lucubrations of his brain, in occasional numbers, published as circumstances may permit.

He has been much importuned to write an account of a tour, which he made to the Far West, and various publications on the subject have been announced as forthcoming from his pen, when, in truth, he had not as yet put pen to paper. To meet, in some degree, the expectations thus excited, he now furnishes a portion of that tour, comprising a visit to the Buffalo Prairies. It is a simple statement of

facts, pretending to no high-wrought effect. Should it give | satisfaction, however, he may be tempted to give further

sketches of American scenes in some future numbers.
