Excerpt from History of Saskatchewan and the Old North West
The author is conscious that in this, the first History of Saskatchewan, many matters have been given a relative prominence that some readers will think undue, and that other topics have been ignored or given but pas... sing notice, which perhaps should have been treated of at length. The problem of selection is one of the most perplexing that has confronted the writer, and in so far as his decision is faulty, he can offer but the poor extenuation of 'mingled good intentions and inexperience.
The work has grown on the author's hands to a bulk far exceeding that originally projected, and it has proved necessary to eliminate whole chapters for which materials had been gathered, and seriously to curtail many others. This elimination 'has occasioned the author the greater regret in that scores of obliging helpers have aided in collecting the materials he has at length felt compelled to reject. He hopes that these kind friends will accept his apologies, and not interpret the omission of their contributions as a failure to appreciate their value.
