The Pamphlet Collection of Sir Robert Stout: Volume 28

Publisher's Note

Publisher's Note.

In introducing this work in its present cheap form to the British public, the Publisher considers it right to state, that he is aware another edition is in circulation, and had that been a faithful reprint of the Author's book, this edition would have been uncalled for; but he thinks it not only unfair to the accomplished Authoress, but equally so to the public, to omit whole pages, and mutilate passages in many places, because they contain sentiments that do not fall in with the prejudices of an editor or publisher.

In this edition the original work is given entire, and the Publisher would say to those who consider the author has allowed her fancy to run wild, that what are deemed the wild fancies of to-day may, twenty years hence, be generally accepted as sober realities. It has always been so in time past and may be so again.

The only change the Publisher has seen fit to make is on the title-page namely, the additional explanatory words, "or a Glimpse into Heaven."
