Excerpt from A Rose of Old Quebec
The writer begs the reader well equipped with dates and facts, if such an one should happen to glance over these pages, to overlook certain manifest anachronisms, notably the antedating of the recognition by England of the distinguished services of Lord Nelson; the extending of the activity and usefulness of Sir Joshua Reynolds even beyond the long term of years in which he contributed to British art; and again, what no beautiful woman would be likely to deem an error, the lengthening of the period in which the Duchess of Devonshire reigned as Queen of Beauty in her native land. For these and other inaccuracies, necessitated by the exacting demands of story-telling, the writer claims the indulgence of her readers.
