Preface.

Tue 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. 3

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 Pigey’s chequered career. To him: children were always jaloune: 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 FREELING BRODERIP.

August, 1858.
