Notes

  • Dedication: To one who never saw Grandfather, but whom the old man travelled many miles to see, and standing by the cradle of the sleeping child, was moved to remark to the wife, who was prepared for Grandfather: "Henry might 'a' done better than that," (both my children being remarkably small as infants); but to one who bids fair to exceed the six feet of his tribe; to one who was a first great-grandson (as I was a first grandson) - to my son "Jim" (Joseph Henry Lawson), This little book is affectionately dedicated, in the fourteenth year of his young life, and the forty-fifth of mine.
  • Other formats: Also sound recording.
