Excerpt from An Autobiography: In Three Parts, With Essays
The writer's name is not given on the title-page of this little waif, for the same reason that nearly all the names of persons and places are omitted in it. It is a name too much associated with the passions and prejudices of recent conflicts, to give it any buoyancy. Friends and acquaintance will not complain at this omission; and those not friends will only be too glad to remain unnoticed.
I am too far advanced in life to ask any thing more than justice and peace. If others can account for my imperfections as I can for theirs, this consummation will not be long in coming. I am now looking towards the glories of sunset, with the calm assurance that nearly sixty-two years of equally glorious sunrise have given me. So far as I have truly and spiritually lived, I am sure there is a spiritual and eternal life.
