Excerpt from Sketch of the Life of the Hon. Isaac Fletcher, Late a Representative in Congress, From the Fifth District in Vermont
IN attempting to combine, in a connected narrative, some of thé leading incidents in the life of General fletcher, I have, I trust, been inﬂuenced more by a desire to do justice to an eminent instance of self-made excellence, in literary and professional pur. Suits, and thereby to countenance and encourage the friendless and fortuneless adventurer in that field, than by any wish to gratify feelings of friendship, kindly remembrance, or grateful aﬂection, either in myself or others; although, I confess, this last consider ation has not been without its weight with me. Nor do I feel that my position, in this attempt, requires of me to subscribe implicitly to the necessity of the maxim - nil de mortais m'si bonum. It will be my endeavor, so far as I shall speak of his course of life, his principles and his character, to speak, as nearly as I shall know, the plain, simple truth.
