From the Publishers' Notice: "While in the "Secret Service" as a "Spy," which is one of the most hazardous positions in the army - she penetrated the enemy's lines, in various disguises, no less than eleven times; always with complete success and without detection...Should any of her readers object to some of her disguises, it may be sufficient to remind them it was from the purest motives and most praiseworthy patriotism, that she laid aside, for a time, her own costume, and assumed that of the opposite sex, enduring hardships, suffering untold privations, and hazarding her life for her adopted country, in its trying hour of need."
