Sixteen years ago the author prepared a book for boys upon the early life Of Abraham Lincoln, entitled, the pioneer boy, and How HE became president. The favorable reception of that. Vol ume carried it through thirty-six editions. Six months ago the publisher of this volume suggested that a Similar work for boys of the present time, upon the early life of General Garfield, would fur nish one of the noblest examples of success for them to imitate.
On gathering materials from the most authentic sources, we were forcibly impressed by the resem blance of General Garfield's early Obscurity and struggles, as well as the triumphs of his manhood, to those Of Mr. Lincoln; and this fact completely reconciled us to a previous engagement to prepare the work.
Both of these statesmen were born in log-cabins, built by their fathers, in the wilderness, for family homes. Both were poor as mortals can well be. Both were born with talents of the highest order.
