Publisher Description

This collection of children's stories by Julian Hawthorne, son of Nathaniel Hawthorne, includes "Yellow-Cap", "Rumpty-Dudget", "Calladon", and "Theeda". "Yellow-Cap" begins: "A good many years ago--before Julius Cæsar landed at Dover, in fact, and while the architect's plans for Stonehenge were still under consideration--England was inhabited by a civilised and prosperous people, who did not care about travelling, and who were renowned for their affability to strangers. The climate was warm and equable; there were no fogs, no smoke, no railways, and no politics. The Government was an absolute monarchy; one king, who was by birth and descent an Englishman, lived in London all the year round; and as for London, it was the cleanest, airiest, and most beautiful city in the whole world."
