A Note on the Text:
This HTML version was scanned from an 1893 edition published by Harper & Brothers. Page numbers (in brackets) refer to this edition.
End-of-line hyphens have not been reproduced, but hyphens within words such as "sea-shore" and "to-day" have been retained. Dashes are represented by double hyphens ("--") although the original text uses an n-dash and spaces (" - ").
Text scanned and proofread by D. Campbell.
