Excerpt from The Illustrated Book of Poultry: With Practical Schedules for Judging; Constructed From Actual Analysis of the Best Modern Decisions

And so we commit this last revised edition of the book OF poultry to that same kindly fraternity from whom the author has received so much kindness, and by whom his past efforts to serve them have been so cordially received. It is pleasant for any author to know that the work to which he put his hand so long ago, still holds its ground, and is valued and referred to as much as ever. It was very pleasant, on turning over its pages, to see how many of the authorities quoted in it are still alive and household words in the fancy, and to remember that nearly every one of such is a personal friend, to whom some kindly recollection attaches. It has been pleasant, from close and necessary occupation in widely different pursuits, to turn fixed attention once more to a former hobby, and to evolve from that inner consciousness acquired by long personal experience and study, how, cg, a Wyandotte mtg/z! To be judged and bred, if all we once learnt is not a delusion and a snare. It has brought back the very feeling of every latch on our old fowl-house doors, and the smell of the meal-tub and the corn-bin, and a thousand remembrances, nearly all of a pleasant kind. May similar pleasant memories, in due time, be accumulated by the reader.
