Note "We mention the death of Zachariah Waterous, one of the authors of this book; who died Febr'y. 17. AD 1809: 2 years before the printing of said book: who at his death signified his desire to have it printed: being several times heard to say; it is no time to turn back in the day of battle at the loss of one man."--title page
"Necessity is the mother of invention. As the printer has not had the least experimental education in the art of printing, previous to this undertaking; he perceives that his work is not so well executed, as that of an experienced workman ... nevertheless, if it shall serve to communicate the authors ideas, to the reader; it will answer every purpose for which it is intended."--p. 84
