An Old-fashioned Girl 

by Louisa M.  Alcott 

Preface 

AS a preface is the only place where an author can with propriety
explain a purpose or apologize for shortcomings, I venture to avail
myself of the privilege to make a statement for the benefit of my
readers.

As the first part of "An Old-Fashioned Girl" was written in 1869,
the demand for a sequel, in beseeching little letters that made
refusal impossible, rendered it necessary to carry my heroine
boldly forward some six or seven years into the future.  The
domestic nature of the story makes this audacious proceeding
possible; while the lively fancies of my young readers will supply
all deficiencies, and overlook all discrepancies.
