Description

Excerpt from How It Looks Here was no thought of presenting them in book form when the short, illustrated sketches here given were begun. They were devised merely as one of the lighter features of the editorial page of the C/zz'cago filial], and have been so continued. The idea was but to exhibit whimsically the effect of translation into literal designs common figures of speech - no new device. That they illustrate in a broader way some of the peculiarities of the English we use is but an accidental result. The responsibility for the appearance of these fancies in the present garb must rest with the publisher. From whom the suggestion came. Stanley w'aterloo.
