It was fortunate that the gentleman who conceived the idea of collecting these chronicles and of laying them before the public in an attractive form, possessed also the means ; fortunate, too, that, having the means to work out the idea, he was not afraid to use them.

A book like this has not been produced without the asking of innumerable questions ; and those to whom they have been addressed, have, in no case, let them pass unheeded, though they had often, doubtless, many more pressing things to do than answering them.

THE UNION VOLUNTEER REFRESHMENT j SALOON ' THE COOPER-SHOP REFRESHMENT SALOON A REGIMENT AT DINNER .... ONE REASON OUT OF FIFTY FOR A SAILORS HOME VIGNETTES : THE FAERAGUT FUND PORTRAIT OF ADMIRAL FARRAGUT . This stated, there is little else requiring notice in these preliminary pages.

Without saying that the seventy millions' voluntary outlay will become seventy-one millions, if this enter- prise ends in disaster, we may hint that the responsibility is quite enough for one pair of shoulders, and that, large or small, it has been gallantly borne.
These are not the annals of mercan- tile shrewdness, of wealth heaped up by toil or avarice, of riches painfully gathered by patience or speedily swept together by genius or fortune : they are the records of money given, not money earned ; of a labor of love, not of labor for hire and salary ; of purse-strings unloosed, of the latch-string hang- ing free, of self-assessment, of tribute rendered always willingly, often unasked.
