Excerpt from Roderick Hume: The Story of a New York Teacher

This story is written to depict certain phases of the modern Union School. It is in no sense a satire. The author has no hobby to ride, no grievance to redress. He has merely described what he has seen, trusting his' fancy just far enough to weave into one web characters and incidents which were real but disconnected. It has been murmured that the characters and incidents are too real, that the ori ginals are readily recognized, and that in portraying them the author has taken unwarrantable liberties. Against this reproach he may be permitted a word of defence.

Ten years ago it was his privilege to meet among the Catskills a group of artists, and to learn some thing of their work. He remembers particularly Mr. Gifford's sketches. They were half a dozen di rect transcripts from nature, a foot square or more, and chosen for some special effect. Here was a white birch, with peeling bark and broken 'limb.
