Excerpt from Compensation or Always a Future

And now, a word for my poor little fiction itself. Mrs. Norton sang, to an ugly child, The loved are lovely, so thou art to me, Child, in whose face strange eyes no beauty see.

And thus I feel toward this little book. I commenced it at a sea son of great sadness - at a period when the very ground on which I stood seemed reeling. Old ties were rent asunder, old faiths, old hopes; all I had lived, loved, and prayed for, swept from me; links severed, never to be clasped together in this state of being. To keep my sorrow from feeding on me, I gave my serpent a file. The world has nothing to do with all this; but my little public may look more favorably on my book-child when they know what an angel of blessing it has proved to me. It has done its duty well; it has cheered me when hopeless; given me fresh spring and impulse when failing health and morbid spirits refused their aid. Now its work is finished with me. It will go out into the world to take its chance by the side of lovelier and cleverer ones. I have done all I can for it in return for its good done to me. 1 am only sorry that my doing has been so weak.
