MEMORIES OF THE MONTHS - Fifth series - 1909 - PREFACE - I FEEL inclined to ask the printer to use red ink for the introduction to this volume, as serving to indicate how I blush at my temerity in laying before a too indulgent public a fifth bundle of these desultory notes. Nobody can be more conscious than myself of their ephemeral quality but the public has itself to blame, if blame there be, because of the encouragement it has shown me to give a more or less permanent form to fleeting impressions, and to prose about matters one cannot but notice in moving through our beautiful land. After all, it is well within the command of readers to bring the series to a conclusion by ceasing to pay it any attention. Of the following papers, Nos. XXI. and LXVIII. have already appeared in Blackwoods Magazine, whereof I thank the editor for his permission to reprint them. Most of the rest have seen daylight in the pages of the Pall Mall Gazette. HERBERT MAXWELL. 6 MONREITH 19, 09 - C O N T E N T S - JANUARY PAGE I. ROYAL ASD ASCLEST . 1 11. A SETT WHALE . 8 111.
