TO

Every honest Patriot citizen, and unconditional Union man, who loves Loyalty and despises Rebellion, whether perpetrated North or South, under one pretence or another, for the sake of office, power, fame, money, or malicious resentment; To every intelligent reading man, who, to whatever party he may belong, is unwilling to see his Government overthrown by wicked and designing men, and who has resolved to live and die beneath the folds of the Star-Spangled Banner: To my companions in the Knoxville Jail, who, with me, swore upon the altar of our country that, despite the gallows and the prison, they would adhere to the Flag of the Federal Union, and who look to the mild umpirage of the Union as the only shield of nationality, is this work

Dedicated by its Author,

Who, during the progress of this revolution, has opposed it at every step, regardless
of consequences personal to himself, and of what designing men might say or
think, or of what a corrupt and pensioned Southern Press might charge,
as to motives; who still bears in mind that it was WASHINGTON
who told us, “ THE CONSTITUTION 18 SAOREDLY OBLIGATORY
UPON ALL;" and that it was JACKSON who said,
THE UNION, IT MUST BE PRESERVED !"

This is a truth now revealed to us,
"Which kings and prophets waited for,
And sought, but never found."
