AND OTHER TALES,
AMERICAN INCIDENTS AND CHARACTER.
BY SAMUEL L. KNAPP.
“There's some peculiar in each leaf and grain-
Some unmark'd fibre, or some varying vein.
And all opinion's colours cast on life.”
Æsop-and Phædrus—and the rest? Why not?---Cowper.

I have taken the liberty to dedicate this small volume to you, as a slight token of my grateful recollections of the many instances of friendship and professional skill I have to acknowledge as flowing from your kindness; and in addition to these, I am indebted to you for many deep and clear readings of the motives and actions of men, communicated in the course of our acquaintance.
These Tales are founded on incidents gathered in the common pathway of life, and intended to exhibit some of the lights and shades as we see them daily.
