PREFACE

THERE is much talk just now of how and what we shall teach; but something is necessary before people can be taught anything:—they must want to learn; and therefore a teacher's chief duty is not to satisfy, but to creat a healthy appetite for knowledge.

It is for this reason that I recommend these stories about great Englishmen to the little ones for whom they are written. I htink such a book willmake them want to know more of the history of their country, will show them that the good and great became so by fighting their way through difficulties, adn will lead them to desire that their lives too may be not quite unworthy of

"This land of such dear souls, this dear, dear land."
