PREFACE.

The object of this little book is to attempt to tell the story of England's history for young folks. Important events have been given in fuller detail than is usual, so as to awaken an interest in them, though no story has been told simply because it is interesting-room having been made for this by omitting much that would be merely burdensome to the memory. Very few dates have been inserted, with the exception of those of the kings' reigns.
