TO CHARLES BUTLER,

OF NEW YORK.

MY DEAR MR. BUTLER:- You know the history of this volume. You know, also, of my other studies in the field of our Revolutionary History, and my hope to con tribute something more to the just appreciation of the great men it produced. You will not, therefore, deny me the gratification of connecting your name with my labors by this public expression of the respect and affection with which

I am, most truly,
Your friend,

GEO. W. GREENE.
