The Melons of Sebastopol

In a former essay, as a historiographer of this campaign, I made a signal failure. I was too modest to chronicle personal observations and experiences. The consequence was that at the end of the demonstration I had nothing to write about. That mistake shall not occur again. After all, the experience of one man is that of thousands; chronicle this faithfully, and the record of any important event, from a too confiding experience with unripe melons to the storming of Sebastopol, is before the world.

—Charles Henry Webb
