BON VOYAGE

LAST YEAR, DEAR FRIENDS, WE MET "AT HOME," AND NOW "ABROAD" WE MEAN TO ROAM: WITH ALL WHO CHOOSE TO SPARE THE TIME WE'LL WANDER TO A NEIGHBOURING CLIME. NOR NEED YOU LEAVE YOUR OWN FIRESIDE, FOR WITH FAIR FANCY FOR OUR GUIDE, OUR WINGED THOUGHTS, IN SWALLOW-FLIGHT, SHALL CROSS THE CHANNEL SMOOTH AND BRIGHT: AND IN DESPITE OF WIND OR WEATHER, WE'LL MAKE OUR LITTLE TOUR TOGETHER.

NOW ON OUR PICTURES YOU SHALL LOOK:-- TO YOU WE DEDICATE OUR BOOK.
