VAI bWill gibble me Ifit iot azi tn e 81bg ?"

So questions one of England's sweetest singers. The "How7"
has already been told, after a fashion, in the verses prefixed to
" Alice in Wonderland"; and some other memories of that happy
summer day are set down, for those who care to see them, in
this little book- the germ that was to grow into the published
volume. But the Why ?" cannot, and need not, be put into
words. Those for whom a child's mind is a sealed book, and
who see no divinity in a child's smile, would read such words
in vain: while for any one that has ever loved one true child,
no words are needed. For he will have known the awe that
falls on one in the presence of a spirit fresh from GOD'S hands,
on whom no shadow of sin, and but the outermost fringe of the
shadow of sorrow, has yet fallen : he will have felt the bitter
contrast between the haunting selfishness that spoils his best deeds
and the life that is but an overflowing love---for I think a
child's first attitude to the world is a simple love for all living
things: and he will have learned that the best work a man can
do is when he works for love's sake only, with no thought of
name, or gain, or earthly reward. No deed of ours, I suppose,
on this side the grave, is really unselfish: yet if one can put
forth all one's powers in a task where nothing of reward is

vi a2B Wio oill nibble me thet obi anb tbe i2s ? "

hoped for but a little child's whispered thanks, and the airy touch
,of a little child's pure lips, one seems to come somewhere near
to this.
There was no idea of publication in my mind when I wrote this
little book : that was wholly an afterthought, pressed on me by the
"perhaps too partial friends" who always have to bear the blame
when a writer rushes into print: and I can truly say that no praise
of theirs has ever given me one hundredth part of the pleasure it
has been to think of the sick children in hospitals (where it has
been a delight to me to send copies) forgetting, for a few bright
hours, their pain and weariness--perhaps thinking lovingly of
the unknown writer of the tale--perhaps even putting up a
childish prayer (and oh, how much it needs /)for one who can but
dimly hope to stand, some day, not quite out of sight of those pure
young faces, before the great white throne. "I am very sure,"
writes a lady-visitor at a Home for Sick Children, "that there
will be many loving earnest prayers for you on Easter morning
from the children."
I would like to quote further from her letters, as embodying a
suggestion that may perhaps thus come to the notice of some one
able and willing to carry it out.
I want you to send me one of your Easter Greetings for a very
dear child who is dying at our Home. She is just fading away,
and 'Alice' has brightened some of the weary hours in her illness,
and I know that letter would be such a delight to her- especially
if you would put Minnie' at the top, and she could know you had
sent itfor her. She knows you, and would so value it. She
suffers so much that I longfor what I know would so please her."
". Thank you very much for sending me the letter, andfor

Pao bill trible me thie 1oib anb the Olp)B?" vii

writing Minnie's name. . I am quite sure that all these
children will say a loving prayer for the 'Alice-man' on Easter
Day : and I am sure the letter will help the little ones to the real
Easter joy. How I do wish that you, who have won. the hearts
and confidence of so many children, would do for them what is so
very near my heart, and yet what no one will do, viz. write a book
for children about GOD and themselves, which is not goody, and
which begins at the right end, about religion, to make them see
what it really is. Iget quite miserable very often over the children
I come across: hardly any of them have an idea of really knowing
that GOD loves them, or of loving and confiding in Him. They
will love and trust me, and be sure that I want them to be happy,
and will not let them suffer more than is necessary: but as for
going to Him in the same way, they would never think of it. They
are dreadfully afraid of Him, if they think of Him at all, which
they generally only do when. they have been naughty, and they look
on all connected with Him as very grave and dull: and, when they
are full of fun and thoroughly happy, I am sure they unconsciously
hope He is not looking. I am sure I don't wonder they think of
Him in this way, for people never talk of Him in connection with
what makes their little lives the brightest. If they are naughty,
people put on solemn faces, and say He is very angry or shocked, or
something which frightens them: and, for the rest, He is talked
about only in a way that makes them think of church and having to
be quiet. As for being taught that all Joy and all Gladness and
Brightness is His Joy-that He is wearying for them to be happy,
and is not hard and stern, but always doing things to make their
days brighter, and caring for them so tenderly, and wanting them
to run to Him with all their little joys and sorrows, they are not

viii fjo bill ribble mt the 1obl anb tfe M ? "

taught that. I do so long to make them trust Him as they trust
us, to feel that He will 'take their fart' as they do with us in their
little woes, and to go to Him in their plays and enjoyments and not
only when they say their prayers. I was quite grateful to one little
dot, a short time ago, who said to his mother 'when I am in bed, I
put out my hand to see if I can feel JESUs and my angel. I
thought perhaps in the dark they'd touch me, but they never have
yet.' I do so want them to want to go to Him, and to feel how,
if He is there, it must be happy."
Let me add-for Ifeel I have drifted into far too serious a vein
for a preface to a fairy-tale-the deliciously naive remark of a
very dear child-friend, whom I asked, after an acquaintance of two
or three days, if she had read 'Alice' and the 'Looking-Glass.'
"Oh yes," she replied readily, I've read both of them! And I
think" (this more slowly and thoughtfully) "I think Through the
Looking-Glass' is more stupid than 'Alice's Adventures.' Don't
you think so ? But this was a question Ifelt it would be hardly
discreet for me to enter upon.
Dec. 1886.


The profits, if any, of this book will be given to Children's
Hospitals and Convalescent Homes for Sick Children: and the
accounts, down to June 30 in each year, will be published in
the St. James's Gazette, on the second Tuesday of the following

P.P.S.-The thought, so prettily expressed by the little boy, is
also to be found in Longfellow's r"Hiawatha,' where he appeals
to those who believe
That the feeble hands and helpless,
Groping blindly in the darkness,
Touch GOD'S right hand in that darkness,
And are lifted up and strenr-thened."
