Excerpt from At the Big House: Where Aunt Nancy and Aunt 'Phrony Held Forth on the Animal Folks

In conclusion it should be said that these stories were all collected from persons well on in years, unable to read and without opportunity of access to books. They are confessedly edited, for all who have col lected folk-tales will know the crude form in which they are obtained, usually a bare, brief outline, though now and then one falls in with a genuine raconteur. The aim has been to imitate, as far as possible, the style of the latter, while jealously preserving the original outlines, so as not to impair their value as folk-lore. To those who would study the imagination of primitive peoples these stories should have some value, if for no other reason than that they add a few more to the stock of this class, the opportunities for gathering which grow less and less with each year and soon will cease alto gether.
