Excerpt from The Schoolmaster's Stories: For Boys and Girls

Some years ago there was a party of forty or fifty boys who met at my house once a week, and to them I often told stories. They sat on the arms of my chair, hung themselves over the back of it, squatted by my feet on the floor, and leaned on one another's shoulders. I noticed that they were particularly eager for stories that had the smell of the frontier about them. I believe I have told in this book some of the very stories that used to amuse these good fellows, who got a great hold on my heart by listening to my stories and liking them. Dear boys! I thought of dedicating the book to them, but they are all gone. Not dead - I did not say that But in five or six years every rascal of them has shot up into something like a young man. Some of them are raising little patches of faint-looking beard on their upper lips, and some of them are nearly six feet high. Think of dedicating a story book to sophomores, and store-clerks, and such like! Its a way boys have. Just when you think you've got a boy, he turns to a man. Boys and tadpoles are uncertain things.

There are some queer little improbable, unbelievable, half-fairy-story sort of things here, which I have often given in small doses to girls. They have generally taken them as kindly as they would have taken sugar-plums or pickles.
