(All rights reserved.) PREFACE

MANY of the articles contained in this little volume originally appeared in the “Field” and some Magazines, to the several proprietors of which I am indebted for permission to republish my sketches.

I take this opportunity of acknowledging the unvarying kindness and courtesy of the Editor of the “Field” to me during my literary connection with that paper.

The four caricature vignettes are from the pencil of Mr. W. H. Woods, of Merton, Thetford, whose keen perception of the ludicrous and capacity for “taking a rise” out of any one are well known to his friends.

SEPTEMBER, 1873.
