Description
Excerpt: Whatever view a story?teller may take of his business, ?tis happy when he can think, ?This book of mine will please such and such a friend,? and may set that friend?s name after the title page. For even if to please (as some are beginning to hold) should be no part of his aim, at least ?twill always be a reward: and (in unworthier moods) next to a Writer I would choose to be a Lamplighter, as the only other that gets so cordial a ?God bless him!? in the long winter evenings.
