The author writes a word before beginning: Molly was an odd name for a boy, you will say, especially for a soldier boy, and a brave one at that. But before you can understand, you will have to read my story. When you have finished I feel quite sure that you will do what I did after reading the bit of old history- give a hearty thought of thanks to the brave drummer, who, during the war of the Revolution passed like a gleam of brightness, fun-and alas sadness through the scenes of war and bloodshed- winning the friendship of all, the esteem and consideration of General Washington himself, and lastly a page or so in history. From the past I lead you forth, oh? hero of long ago, and present to you the hero and heroine lovers of today, feeling sure that a warm welcome awaits you.
