Excerpt from Robinson Crusoe's Money: Or the Remarkable Financial Fortunes and Misfortunes of a Remote Island Community

If any apology for the objects designed or the course pur sued is needed, the author thinks he finds it in the precedent established by the illustrious Geoffrey Crayon, Gent, who, in the introduction to his Tales of a Traveler, thus happily sets forth the special advantage which accrues from the proper em ployment of a story as a means of communicating informa tion. I am not, he says, for those barefaced tales which carry their moral on their surface, staring one in the face; on the contrary, I have often hid my moral from Sight, and dis guised it as much as possible by sweets and spices; so that while the simple reader is listening with open mouth to a ghost or love story, he may have a bolus of sound morality popped down his throat, and be never the wiser for the fraud.

About the Author:

Called the "Father of the American Cartoon," Thomas Nast (1840-1902) was an influential caricaturist and political cartoonist. Remembered for his Civil War illustrations in Harper's Weekly, Nast's political cartoons were also instrumental in the downfall of Boss Tweed and the election of President Ulysses S. Grant. He solidified America's picture of Santa Claus by portraying him as a round, twinkly, elfin figure, which he based on descriptions in Washington Irving's writings and Clement Moore's poem "The Night Before Christmas." Nast also popularized the donkey as a symbol representing the Democratic Party and the elephant as a Republican Party symbol.
