Excerpt from Gleanings Among the Kansas Sheaves
Neither love of glory nor the expectation of becoming famous induced me to publish this volume. I expect to be severely criticised, but, like Jupiter in the fable, I will say to all critics, It is time to criticise the works of ... others when you have done some good thing yourself. So much has been said of American humor, and there are so many different varieties in these Western wilds, that, mine having appeared in this form. I give it to the public for what it is worth.
