The Publishers of Dr. Carson's works are at length enabled to give to their Subscribers and the public, the first volume of the series. They regret that it could not be issued sooner. The delay, however, was unavoidable, being in consequence of the great difficulty experienced in reading the manuscripts.
They deem it due to the Author to state here, that
the greater number of the papers appearing in the
present volume are printed from the original manuscripts, which were not prepared by him for publication. Had he been spared to revise them, they would probably have been much improved.
The publishers have only further to say, that they have used every means in their power of ascertaining
the exact phraseology of the Author in the manuscripts of the papers hitherto unpublished. In this they feel
confident they have, on the whole, succeeded. Some words, however, could not be made out with perfect accuracy; and, in relation to these, they can only hope no serious mistake has occurred.
