PREFACE.




This is the last book of the series, and it naturally ends with the little children who always trot after the tail of any procession. Only women understand children thoroughly but if a mere man keeps very quiet, and humbles himself properly, and refrains from talking down to his superiors, the children will sometimes be good to him and let him see what they think about the world. But, even after patient investigation and the condescension of the nursery, it is hard to draw babies correctly.
