Excerpt from From Taps Till Reveille

When my first booklet, "Songs Of A Weary Pilgrim," was given to the public, to which I now submit "From Taps Till Reveille," I did not expect it would receive so cordial a reception. As a wise father knows the imperfections of his children, and knows that others know them, I recognize the defects of my mental offspring, and know that others see them. I fully appreciate the generous criticisms of those who find some merit in what I have written. Competent critics have passed judgment; and their endorsements are very dear to me. Many intelligent people, with neither time nor inclination for continuous and varied reading, have derived pleasure from my writings. We belong to different intellectual worlds but I can say, without egotism, that I am like Richter in one respect, I love God and little children. I cherish, most of all, the approval of the embryonic men and women who read and enjoyed and told me so. The unbought love of a little child outweighs the friendship of a king; and praise from its lips is sweeter than the gratulations of a prince.
