Dedication.

TO ALL THOSE WHO LOVE JUSTICE AND MERCY

THIS VOLUME IS DEDICATED.

" Ye therefore who love mercy, teach your sons

To love it too. The springtime of our years
Is soon dishonoured and defiled in most
By budding ills, that ask a prudent hand
To check them. But alas! none sooner shoots,
If unrestrained, into luxurious growth
Than cruelty, most devilish of them all.
Mercy to him that shows it is the rule,-
And righteous limitation of its act
By which Heaven moves in pardoning guilty man ;
And he that shows none, being ripe in years,
And conscious of the outrage he commits,
Shall seek it AND NOT FIND IT, in his turn."

“I will not kill nor hurt any living creature needlessly, nor destroy any
beautiful thing; but will strive to save and comfort all gentle life, and guard and
perfect all natural beauty upɔn the earth.”From the Rules of the Society of
St. George, drafted by Mr. Ruskin.
