The original edition of volume four included one final sentence. It read:

"Setting out after this with Duncan, he returned to his home; having experienced a number of incidents, and some danger in his travels, sufficient for one ramble."

By 1819, Brackenridge had made a major revision in terms of divisions. All of the 1819 edition is included in two parts (the volume signification was deleted). Each of the two parts were divided equally into 4 books each. This conclusion, rather than the end of part one, is the end of book 3. Book 4 consists of the first "volume" of part 2 from the original serial edition..
