The Youth of Jefferson: or The Chronicles of College Scrapes at Williamsburg, in Virginia, A.D. 1764
TO THE READER.
This little tale is scarcely worth a preface, and it is only necessary
to say, that it was written as a relaxation after exhausting toil. If
its grotesque incidents beguile an otherwise weary hour with innocent
laughter, the writer’s ambition will have been fully gratified.
