If my narrative furnishes a sad story for the leaders and chieftains of the Tammany Society and the Tam many Hall political organization, the fault is not mine, but that of a multitude of incontestible public records. It was in no partisan spirit that I began the work, and in none that I now conclude it. I have always been an independent in politics: and I have even voted, when there seemed to me ample reason for doing so, a Tammany ticket. I have tried to set down nothing in malice, nor with such exceptions as are obviously neces sary with regard to living men, to extenuate anything whatever. Those who may be tempted to consider my work partial and partisan, on account of the showing that it makes of Tammany corruption and inefficiency, will do well to read carefully the pages relating to the Whigs and to some other opponents of Tammany Hall.
