"Of all the peoples known in history, the American people most readily forget yesterday; I publish this Diary in order to recall yesterday to the memory of my countrymen. In this Diary I recorded what I heard and saw myself, and what I heard from others, on whose veracity I can implicitly rely. I recorded impressions as immediately as I felt them. A life almost wholly spent in the tempests and among the breakers of our times has taught me that the first impressions are the purest and the best."
