Excerpt from Never-Told Tales

"Never-Told Tales." I have no doubt that many good souls after reading these humble pages will think: 'Twould have been better, if these tales had still remained untold. Some people are so squeamish that they are shocked by the simplest truths. You cannot argue with a person's sense of propriety. The nudity of the new-born babe has been known to shock deeply the sensibilities of some old maids. With such people I have no quarrel. All I can say is: honi soit qui mal y pense. Everybody is entitled to his opinions and to his feelings. For my part I will say: It is a pity, a heartbreaking pity, that these tales were not told long, long ago. "There is too much misery in this world" is the plaint of Edmond About's poor Auvergnat.
