It disclaims to be, from any standpoint, the history of the times of Governor Robinson. Yet from the life of Robinson history radiates in every direction, and therefore his biography cannot be written without touching history at many points. But great care has been taken to make all historical statements exact so far as used, and as complete as the subject and circumstances would admit. The events with which the subject of the biography was connected have been made prominent, while others have been omitted or passed over lightly as a necessity.

While many facts of history are recited, historical narrative is not undertaken. Even the biography is abridged, and only a larger volume would present the life of Robinson in its fullness. It ought to contain the details of his work in connection with the Emigrant Aid Company- a careful review of his life as Governor and as legislator of the State- a careful account of his California adventure- a more extended account of his services to the Free-State cause- a review of his political beliefs and opinions- his political relations to other prominent men of the State- his interest in social affairs- his writings- and last, but not least, his services to the cause of education.
