This is no work of fiction. It is sober history: yet if the bare facts it tells were set forth without the connecting links, its preface might be made to look like the plot of a dime novel.
It is the story of a poor boy who inherited great wealth: who ran away from home to fight for liberty and glory: who became a major-general before he was twenty years Old: who knew every nook and corner of the palace at Versailles, yet was the blood brother of American Indians: who tried vainly to save the lives of his king and queen: who was in favor of law, yet remained a rebel to the end of his days: who suffered an unjust) imprisonment which has well been called a night five years long: who was twice practically Dictator of France: and who, in his Old age, was called upon, to make a great decision.
