THE appearance of the History of the War having been delayed long beyond the period at which the author at first intended, he begs leave to assure the Public, that the delay was occasioned by a combination of circumstances which it was not in his power to control. Much of that delay, in fact, arose from the difficulty experienced in procuring paper of a sufficiently good quality to answer the just expectations of the patrons of the work. As much exertion has lately been made in Iliagara, lo supply the Canadian public with the means of information, and that not without a heady outlay to those interested in the publishing department, it is confidently hoped, that a genero18 public will fully appreciate those efforts, and crtend that patronage
which will ensure success.
