MEMORIES OF THE MONTHS - Third series - 1903 - INTRODUCTION - As the shadows lengthen, the man becomes more and Inore garrulous. La jeunesse it lui reparaft, quoth Alexandre Dumas, apportant tous ces souvenirs suaves, qui sont plutdt des parfurns que des pens6es. Courtesy and forbearance on the part of his friends provide him with an audience, nor does he spare them, spinning interminable yarns, sometimes of very indifferent texture. Rut he who corninits his memories to print cannot reckon on similar indulgence. Good manners may compel attention to an old fellow from his company, but nobody is under any obligation to read what he chooses to write, wherefore nobody has any right to co nplain if he chooses that silent mode of monologue. What has tempted me to indulge in it again is the agreeable reception accorded to two former series of these Memories. I can but hope that the present volume, filled with what are plutdt des parfum que des penskes, may be found in some degree redolent of the greenwood, the hillside and its falling floods, and refresh those who have learned to v L-i draw their purest pleasures from those never-failing sources.
