Excerpt from The Kansas Conflict An apology may be due to the reading public for submitting to it the pages that follow. In an address before the Kansas State Historical Society, on retiring from the office of president, in the winter of 1881, I said: "The time for writing the true history of Kansas has not yet arrived, and will not arrive till the historian shall be so far removed from the actors and passions of the hour as to be able to survey calmly the whole field, and to discern clearly, not only events, but causes and effects as well. Distance lends enchantment to a view, and clearness to the vision of the historian. A corporal might narrate with accuracy the exploits of his foraging squad, but he would be a poor historian even of his company. The part he played with his squad would be more important to him than all the other exploits of the larger body, however brilliant, and, in fact, would prevent him from seeing what his comrades were doing. The colonel of a regiment might relate with great fidelity the achievements of his regiment, but he in turn would be a poor historian of the brigade. A general of brigade or division might be well qualified to furnish facts connected with his immediate command, but the more strictly he attended to his own duties the less would he be competent to write the history of the army.
