Preface.


THE following story of the Precocious Pig" was originally related by our dear
father, when the writer of these lines was a little girl, much inclined to cry over
poor Piggy's tragical fate; and the artist who illustrates it so appropriately, was
a little fat boy, who chuckled over Piggy's misdeeds with intense enjoyment.
Our smiles are now graver and sadder; for, after many years of chance and
change, the old familiar words recall only a beloved memory of one, who once
forgot his own cares and sufferings to minister to his children's amusement and
pleasure.
We feel, however, we are fulfilling what would have been our father's own
wish, in giving to another generation of little girls and boys, the veritable history
of Piggy's chequered career. To him children were always welcome; and to us
it will be a great pleasure that anything of his can, so many years after his
death, bring a merry laugh to the little face of that happy childhood that he
loved so well.


FRANCES FEELING BRODERIP.


August, 1858.
