TO

MY MOTHER,

IN ALL REVERENCE AND LOVE,

I INSCRIBE THIS BOOK.

THE AUTHOR TO HER AMERICAN

READERS.

My little book seems scarcely to admit of prefatory words : either it will speak for itself, or all my additions must fail to speak for it.

Its reappearance, however, in an American edition, gives me a welcome opportunity of acknowledging the courtesy and liberality of Messrs. Roberts Brothers, who have arranged with me and with my kind friend and publisher, Mr. Macmillan, to bring it before the American public.
