Excerpt

To the grandchildren:

You twelve young people have made this book possible. It is written to you and for you. Because you were constantly in my mind while writing, the words came easily. I did not have to choose between being unduly modest on the one hand or vainglorious on the other, or to pick with anxious care a path between the extremes. For you I could write without self-consciousness.

It is my hope that from this narrative you may draw some small measure of light and leading for your own active years.

Here ends my direct message to you. Yet be assured that you are in my mind in every one of the pages which follow.

R. E. F.
