Transcription JOSCELYN305
Here ends our present chronicle. We have done what we proposed
at first to give the opening scene in the grand drama of the seven
years' war of the Revolution in the South. The dramatis persona',
such as yet remain undisposed of, are yet to survive for long conflicts,
frequently renewed. Of their fate, their fortunes, we may speak in
future pages. That they were various and dubious, alternately sad-
dened with defeat and exulting in triumph, the reader can readily
conceive; but we trust to gratify all curiosity in respect to these
several parties, when our readers shall again meet with us, under the
auspices of the publisher.
