Therefore this is neither an official guide to England or a brief historical review of that much buffeted kingdom.

Many things of interest pertaining to John Bull and his island have been omitted, and only a comparatively few localities touched upon in passing. This little volume was written to please the Only Girl, to whom it is also dedicated, and having performed its alloted task and thereby justified its continued existence, may possibly find favor elsewhere. With all its faults I love it still, for it is the fragmentary record of a pleasant sojourn in Albion. The statements it contains are all founded on either fact or circumstance, and are made without personal bias or enmity.

Like most other things, John Bull must be viewed as an all-around proposition and from many standpoints. He is a complex individual, full of moods and changes, cordial or crabbed as you happen to find him, and must be judged accordingly. But he lives in a Paradise six months of the year, and one can at any rate ramble over his domain with an appreciation of all that is so beautiful and in some respects so different from what we are accustomed to at home. To travel is good for the soul, and even if it has no other broadening effect there is compensation in the pride and mighty gladness that pervades every fibre of an American as he returns once more to Gods Country, after having compared it with the effete and mouldering institutions of the Old World.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
