Excerpt from Chronicles of the Cape Fear River: Being Some Account of Historic Events on the Cape Fear River
The reception of the Cape Fear Chronicles, not only by friends of the author but by the general reader, and in particu lar by historical scholars, has been most unusual. The general expression of gratification at its publication and the generous recognition of its value are emphatic assuranms that Mr. Sprunt's endeavor to preserve the memories of the Cape Fear has been appreciated beyond his expectations. Numerous and insistent have been the requests for a second edition, to which he has finally yielded, and in doing so he has embodied much addi tional matter of interest and imwrtance equal to that contained in the first edition. The incorporation of this new matter has necessitated some changes in the old, most of which have been merely verbal, but in a few instances more important changes have been made to secure greater uniformity and conform to more recent information concerning certain local traditions and memories. No trouble has been spared in either edition to secure the greatest exactitude in details, and especially has this been true of the edition now presented.
