Excerpt

In presenting this revised edition to a new generation, the author feels that the element of change has touched very lightly the romantic potentialities obtaining at the time of the original writing, and which still obtain. Christian youth still chances upon Jewish youth, with the same difference of historic background, the same social barriers and prejudices -- the same possibilities of mutual attraction. The humanest love knows no sect. Only in one respect has the face of youth altered -- to wit, in the ignoring of the Fifth Commandment. Twenty years ago that Commandment was, to the child, the paramount Commandment, beautiful in concept, but carrying in its results many a silent tragedy. Today the dominance of the individualistic creed with its substituted "Honor Thy Self" holds no such tears of renunciation, but, with the passing of that older order, has there not passed a beauty from the world? It is the story of that beauty which the author, in this revised edition, for a new generation, has not cared to revise.

EMMA WOLF.

San Francisco, 1916.
