PREFACE.

[graphic]

HIS book is more a matter of fact than a matter of fiction. For, strange to say, though professing to be a fairy tale, there is not a magic change in

it that has not had its origin in world without rather than in the imaginations of the Authors. Indeed, to prevent the appearance of romancing-in this, perhaps one of the most wonderful romances ever written—chapter and verse have been giveu for every wonder in it.
