TO MY READERS.

THE majority of the papers in this volume have

already appeared in the pages of Once a Week and the London Review. I am half afraid that the public have had enough of them already, and I have only been tempted to republish them by the representations of my Publisher. The fact that “Our Social Bees”—a work somewhat similar in scope to the present volume—has already reached a sixth edition, indicates, he tells me, that I have not yet exhausted the public patience. Trusting this may prove to be the case, I have ventured to trespass once more upon the good-nature of my readers. Professional work will not permit me, however, to do so again; and the next time I take up my pen, it must be in furtherance of the main business of my life—the study of Mental Disease.
