LOSSING'S

PICTORIAL HISTORY OF THE GREAT CIVIL WAR.

9

From the Hon. EDWARD EVERETT, D.C.L., &c.

Boston, March 11, 1862. DEAR SIR: I have examined with interest and pleasure the prospectus of the "PIC. TORIAL HISTORY OF THE GREAT CIVIL WAR,” proposed to be executed by Mr. Lossing. I feel no hesitation in expressing the opinion that such a work, prepared by Mr. Lossing, will be of great value. Mr. Lossing's diligenco in exploring the localities which he describes, his fidelity and accuracy as a historian, and the spirit of bis illustrations, are too well known, from his volumes which are already before the public, to need any recommendation. I remain, dear sir, respectfully yours,

EDWARD EVERETT.

ANT,

From WM. C. BRYANT, Esq.

New York, March 16, 1862. DEAR SIR :-I am glad to learn that Mr. Lossing is preparing a “PICTORIAL HISTORY OF THE GREAT CIVIL WAR.” In his previous works, no man has shown himself more diligent and careful in the collection of facts, and his illustrations are executed with great fidelity and exactness. I am, sir, respectfully yours, GEORGE W. CHILDS, Esq.

WM. C. BRYANT.

From General CASS. I am much gratified to be informed that Mr. Lossing is preparing a History of the present Civil War. The theme is equally instructive and impressive; and I am satisfied that the undertaking will be executed with diligence and ability, and that the work will become a valuable repository, not only for present perusal, but also for future reference.

LEWIS CASS.

From JARED SPARKS, LL.D.

Cambridge, March 25, 1862. Dear Sir:-I have perused with much satisfaction the prospectus of a work which you propose to publish on the present war, and which is to be prepared by Mr. Lossing. If we may judge from the result of Mr. Lossing's labors in previous works of a similar character, it cannot be doubted that this enterprise will be executed with ability, zeal, and success, and will furnish valuable materials for illustrating the history of the period to which it relates. Respectfully and truly yours, GEORGE W. CHILDs, Esq.
