Excerpt from A Week in New YorkIn view of the fact that it has been necessary to mention in the following pages the names of many men and places of business-stores, theatres, hotels, restaurants, transportation companies, etc. - coupled with the fact that "guide-books," unfortunately so called, arc often prepared primarily in the interest of certain advertising patrons, and hence are both partial and untrustworthy, the makers of the present book feel called upon to say distinctly, that in no single case has any remuneration, direct or indirect, influenced them in anything herein written or omitted to be written.The writer was left quite free to shape the matter as suited his judgment, regardless of "what the left-hand [the publisher] was doing," and the only persons, from A to Izzard, who even knew that they or their establishments were to be mentioned, were some theatre-managers and a few hotel-keepers, from whom certain information was asked. The first-named forgot to send any free tickets, and the hotel men never gave a single invitation to dinner!Advertisements appear as such in this book, in suitable form; but there is not a paid-for commendation, nor a disguised advertisement, from cover to cover.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
