OBITER DICTA 

'An _obiter dictum_, in the language of the law, is
a gratuitous opinion, an individual impertinence, which,
whether it be wise or foolish, right or wrong, bindeth
none--not even the lips that utter it.' 

OLD JUDGE. 

_PREFACE TO THE AMERICAN EDITION. 

This seems a very little book to introduce to so large a continent.  No
such enterprise would ever have suggested itself to the home-keeping
mind of the Author, who, none the less, when this edition was proposed
to him by Messrs.  Scribner on terms honorable to them and grateful to
him, found the notion of being read in America most fragrant and
delightful. 

London, February 13, 1885._
