BY ORDER OF THE AUTHOR, Per G.G., Chief of Ordnance.
IN this book a number of dialects are used, to wit: the Missouri negro dialect; the extremest form of the backwoods Southwestern
dialect; the ordinary "Pike County" dialect; and four modified varieties of this last. The shadings have not been done in a
haphazard fashion, or by guesswork; but painstakingly, and with the trustworthy guidance and support of personal familiarity with
these several forms of speech.
I make this explanation for the reason that without it many readers would suppose that all these characters were trying to talk
alike and not succeeding.
