Description

Excerpt from As Ithers See Us Now I do not presume to have the power to g1e this giftie. Ihave no sovereign ointment that will open the eyes of the thoughtless and prejudiced and enable them to see. What I have is a magic mirror designed to reflect the oddities and imperfections of people in different spheres of life. Or, in other words, I have a few little mischievous foxes, caught in vine yards here and there, which I wish to exhibit for your inspection. Most of them are mine, caught while gnawing my own vines, but if you find among them any bearing your mark, you are welcome to appropriate them. If the exhibition of my pets will enable you to detect yours, in case vou have any, I shall feel amply repaid for the trouble. And now with kindness towards all and malice aforethought towards none, I send this little volume on its mission; hoping that those who have hitherto been beholding them selves in a glass darkly and here see faceto face will not give themselves away by undue words or warmth, 'but will quietly wear any shoe that fits or adopt any fox that's theirs.
