PREFACE.

* * * * *

One evening—­it was winter, and the hills and fields were covered with snow, but the moon shone bright on the frosty windows, and the fire was burning cheerfully in the grate; it was such an evening when one likes to enjoy the pleasures of a song or story.  You may imagine yourselves on such an evening seated around the table, something like the knights of old, whose pleasure it was to relate their wonderful deeds of arms, when they returned from the “Holy Land,” or from some noble deed of knightly prowess; but the stories you shall hear are very different from those, as the picture you see before you indicates.  They are chiefly stories for children, and are such as relate more particularly to the affections of the heart.  They may be “Fairy Tales,” or they may be household narratives of facts, such as occur in the every-day life of a child.  If the moral be good and pure, and the mind interested and made better, the end is accomplished.
