Excerpt from All About the Merry Tales of Gotham
The reasons that prompted me to take up the present work may be thus set forth First, a predilection for local history, etc., which must otherwise have found an outlet in some kindred study. Second, the circumstance that the wi... de-famed Tales, once to be found scat tered broadcast over these islands, in chap book form are not now obtainable, except in bibliographical works dealing with them among divers other matters, and even these works are mostly or entirely out of print. Third, the tales have never yet been edited, or even seriously looked into, so far as I can find, by one acquainted with the history, etc., of the neighbourhood to which they relate.
