Comments¶ The scarce enlarged edition of Neal's second book, with a new 66-page preface, explaining his intentions and his thoughts on the state of American literature in general. At the time this was written, Neal (1793-1876) lived Baltimore and was in a business partnership with the poet John Pierpont, about whom he writes in the preface.
