I wish my hero's name was anything but Smith—anything but John Smith ; 'for 1 know the reader will pronounce the story 1 mar relate, a fiction at first sight. ' Else why, (he"will ask,) did the writer select for his prominent character a name so common, and hence so void of meaning V But 1 pro, tot on my honor, that my solo purpose in using a name so anpoetical, is to give the reader a plain, unvarnished tale of truth, without" even the semblance of disguise.
