  • "In this edishon I have put in my last letters ... Contains many important letters on the Great consarns of the nashon, sent to the Portland curier, and my friend Dwight of New York."--Pref.
  • BAL cites M.A. Wyman, Two American pioneers, p. 84, who states that this is an unauthorized edition, which includes letters written by Charles A. Davis as well as by Smith. In his Bibl. of the state of Maine, J. Willimason writes, "This was the first edition of Jack Downing. It should not be confounded with 'Letters of Jack Downing to his old friend Mr. Dwight' ... New York, 1834, which was written by Charles A. Davis, and is either spurious or in imitation."
