Excerpt from The Life of Andrew Jackson, President of the United States: Illustrated With Numerous Cuts
The facts related in this book are stated pretty much in reg'lar order of time. It wasn't possible tu put in every thing that the gineral said and did, 'cause he has bin in a blaze of glory eny most ever since he was born. The gineral has honer'd me with his warm friendship; he has corrected many of my mistakes; he has furnished me, With some of the mostimportant facts, and enabled me, without pullin down former lives tu build new ones, tu give the oney true and faithful life of the gineral, and the new Jackson sect that has jiet sprung up, that has ever bin rit. Tu him I owe my honers and my fame he has bin my patron and protecktor; he continues tu honer me With his confidence, and tu favor me with his regard; and he says he'll never be offended at my bold, honest plainness in tellin him all the folks say about him 'cause he has tri'd me long and can safely depind on me. He says, I'm no parasite; I won't never cringe like Martin for his inﬂuence tu make me president arter him, and that arter all the submissions of Mar tin, he's a leetle balanc'd atween me and him, and in a quan dary which tu support.
