Stories are something like letters. When a letter is written how often one remembers things omitted and says, A h, why did I not tell them that? In writing a hook one relates all that one remeinhers at the time, and if one told all that really happened perhaps the book would never end. Between the lines of every story there is another story, and that is one that is never heard and can only be guessed at by the people who are good at guessing. The person who writes the story 7nay never know all of it, but sometimes he does and wishes he had the chance to begin again. When I wrote the story of Sara Crewe I guessed that a great deal more had happened at Miss Minchins than I had had time to find out just then.(Typographical errors above are due to OCR software and don't occur in the book.)About the Publisher Forgotten Books is a publisher of historical writings, such as: Philosophy, Classics, Science, Religion, History, Folklore and Mythology.Forgotten Books' Classic Reprint Series utilizes the latest technology to regenerate facsimiles of historically important writings.
