SEVERAL OF THE KING'S GUARDS RAN IN TO SEIZE THE HORSE BY THE HEAD.
TO MY FRIEND HARRY
My dear Harry,
When you are a big man, perhaps you will go out into the world, and see many strange things.
I cannot promise that you will find any people so little as the Lilliputians, nor any quite so tall
as those that Mr. Lemuel Gulliver found in Brobdingnag.
But undoubtedly there are yet many small folks in the world, and a few great ones. Did not Mr.
Stanley himself find in Africa a race of dwarfs so little that he called them Pigmies?
Who knows, then, what you may discover when you are grown up?
