PRINTED AND PUBLISHED FOR THE ART EXHIBITION FOR THE
RELIEF OF DISTRESS IN THE COTTON DISTRICTS.

THE task of seeing this little volume through the press has been an easy and pleasant one.
. Most of the contributions have been written specially and many more might have been added but for the wish that the book should appear at Christmas, and the brief time consequently allowed for its preparation. Miss Faithfull undertook to print and publish a thousand copies free of expense, the compositors of the Victoria Press volunteering their services, and Messrs. Richard Herring & Co. furnishing the paper gratuitously, so that the proceeds of the sale will be devoted to the object to which the volume is dedicated.
