While on the faculty of the then infant Indiana University he became involved in a feud with Andrew Wylie and, in 1831, left the state. In spite of his marked bitterness toward some of the people of whom he writes, the book is both a readable and valuable account of life in pioneer Indiana. Because of his rather outspoken criticism of persons still living, Hall disguised his work with a series of made up names and published it under the pseudonym 'Robert Carlton'" (Lilly Library, One Hundred and Fifty Years: An Exhibition Commemorating the Sesquicentennial of Indiana Statehood, 96). "The New Purchase is now valuable source material on the pioneer life of the state and south central Indiana in particular" (Shumaker, A History of Indiana Literature (Indianapolis, 1962; p. 155).
