Author’s Preface

A small portion of this tale appeared in Once a Week, July- September, 1859, under the title of "A Good Fight."

After writing it, I took wider views of the subject, and also felt uneasy at having deviated unnecessarily from the historical outline of a true story. These two sentiments have cost me more than a year’s very hard labour, which I venture to think has not been wasted. After this plain statement I trust all who comment on this work will see that to describe it as a reprint would be unfair to the public and to me. The English language is copious, and, in any true man’s hands, quite able to convey the truthnamely, that one-fifth of the present work is a reprint, and fourfifths of it a new composition.
