I Want To Do Them Good Without Their Knowing It.

I want to do you all good - to improve your minds and to make you think, if I can.

WHAT you will think after you have read the book, I do not want to know; indeed, I would rather not know. It will be sufficient reward for me to feel that I have done my duty, and to receive a percentage on the gross sales.

LONDON, March, 1891.

DIARY OF A PILGRIMAGE

MONDAY, 19TH

My Friend B. - Invitation to the Theatre. - A Most Unpleasant Regulation. - Yearnings of the Embryo Traveller. - How to Make the Most of One's Own Country. - Friday, a Lucky Day. - The Pilgrimage Decided On.

My friend B. called on me this morning and asked me if I would go to a theatre with him on Monday next.

"Oh, yes! certainly, old man," I replied. "Have you got an order, then?"

He said:

"No; they don't give orders. We shall have to pay."

"Pay! Pay to go into a theatre!" I answered, in astonishment. "Oh, nonsense! You are joking."

"My dear fellow," he rejoined, "do you think I should suggest paying if it were possible to get in by any other means? But the people who run this theatre would not even understand what was meant by a 'free list,' the uncivilised barbarians! It is of no use pretending to them that you are on the Press, because they don't want the Press; they don't think anything of the Press.
