Looking at my young audience with affectionate regard, and seeing amongst them boys and girls, youths and maidens, of all classes, of all tastes and dispositions, I have endeavoured to find something suited for all; for the elder ones, whose maturer minds require food of a more varied and elevated character; and for the little ones, to whom the fairy-tale will never lose its attractions. Stories for all such are within theso pages; are the flowers which compose my nosegay, and which have been selected with thoughtful care, and bound together with a loving hand, as an offering to that great and interesting portion of the public, its JUVENILE READERS; the children now-the men and women of a few years hence. To them, therefore--the generous, warm-hearted, pure-minded, and affectionate youthful generation, which has its ranks filled up in never-ceasing succession-these volumes are inscribed.
