In preparing for the press a new edition of this little work, the author has endeavored to render it more worthy of the approbation and kindly feeling with which it has been received; she cannot better express her sense of both than by justifying, as far as it is in her power, the cordial and flattering tone of all the p...

HUDSON BAY, BY R.M. BALLANTYNE.

PREFACE.

In publishing the present work, the Author rests his hopes of its favourable reception chiefly upon the fact that its subject is comparatively new.

PREFACE TO FOURTH EDITION.

Since this book was written, very considerable changes have ...

The different scenes and incidents are given exactly as they occurred, and ...

So entirely has the telephone outgrown the ridicule with which, as many people can well remember, it was first received, that it is now in most places taken for granted, as though it were a part of the natural phenomena of this planet. It has so marvellously extended the faciliti...
