WILL APPRECIATE THE FEELING IN WHICH IT HAS BEEN WRITTEN;

THE MORE SO, PERHAPS,

WHEN THEY KNOW THAT THE AUTHOR WAS COMPELLED TO TOIL

FOR HIS BREAD IN A FACTORY, FROM HIS SIXTH YEAR,

AT A TIME WHEN THE WORKING HOURS WERE

FAR MORE NUMEROUS THAN NOW;

AND

WHEN THEY KNOW THAT THE WRONGS AND SUFFERINGS DEPICTED

IN MANY OF THE FOLLOWING LINES, ARE BUT THE

REFLEX OF ACTUAL EXPERIENCE AND

OBSERVATION.
