While this improved third edition is being forward to the press for publication I wish to make the following statement: It has been gratifying to my mine to note the marked reception that has already been accorded by my first and second edition it has found a warm spot in the heart many enthusiastic book-lovers some of who are Ministers, Judges, Lawyers, Medical Doctors, Chaplains, Libra rains of leading colleges and universities, for an instant The Atlantic Christians College, University of North Carolina, Shaw University and also the Historical library of Disciple of Christ, Nashville, Tenn., some have remarked that they hope I would write another a task which unfortunately I feel to say would be well nigh impossible nevertheless I have had vision and energy enough to supplement my first edition with some new Creations, like all creative writing the characters in my stories are fictitious with the exception of the one in which there are two brothers mention of dual names. These are real persons hence their real names, you may note also in one of my stories entitled Two Living Example of Moral Goodness I have Praised Mr. Miles T. Nixon am ex-slaves who out of a noble and kind heart shared with me much of his knowledge of antique customs especially in that of the marring of slaves and his first- hand knowledge On the origin of dolls though only a story as is also the one on Grandma Charlotte On Mother's Day. But not without their moral significance values which if lost will lessen a sense few personal. Responsibility for conscientious Christian living thus letting down the bars for paganism then what will follow one does not have to make a wild fuss for as a matter of fact there will be. Visible spiritual darkness and for many of us our Paradise will be lost, The world will soon to ruin go the sun forbear to shine but Christ who calls me here below shall be forever mine.
