PREFACE.




ST 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
t over Piggy's misdeeds with intense
enjoyment.

Our smiles are now graver and
sadder; for, after many years of
PIGGY AT HIS TOILET.
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.
