BOOK THIRD. 

INITIAL CHAPTER. 

SHOWING HOW MY NOVEL CAME TO BE CALLED "MY NOVEL." 

"I am not displeased with your novel, so far as it has gone," said my
father, graciously; "though as for the Sermon--" Here I trembled; but
the ladies, Heaven bless them! had taken Parson Dale under their special
protection; and observing that my father was puckering up his brows
critically, they rushed forward boldly in defence of The Sermon, and Mr.
Caxton was forced to beat a retreat.  However, like a skilful general,
he renewed the assault upon outposts less gallantly guarded.  But as it
is not my business to betray my weak points, I leave it to the ingenuity
of cavillers to discover the places at which the Author of "Human Error"
directed his great guns.
