The Haunted Hotel: A Mystery of Modern Venice and My Lady's Money

By Wilkie Collins | Go to book overview

PREFACE.

THE public favor, at home and abroad, has shown such marked approval of "The Haunted Hotel," during its periodical appearance, that I may trust the work to speak for itself in the form under which it now appeals to other circles of readers.

The second story was originally published in the Christmas number of the Illustrated London News for 1877. Imperative necessity, connected with the question of space, left the friendly and considerate authorities at the Office no other alternative than to print "My Lady's Money" in a type which presented serious obstacles (spectacles notwithstanding) to readers who had arrived at a mature time of life. I have now the honor of directing the attention of these ladies and gentlemen to the marked consideration for their convenience exhibited by the printers of the story in its present form. Adding one word more, in relation to the purely literary side of the question, I would venture to hope that the studies of character in this little work will be found faithfully drawn from Nature--and that all friends of dogs will discover something which is true also of their dogs in the pen-and-ink portrait of "Tommie." W. C.

LONDON, October, 1878.
