LONDON
ADAM AND CHARLES BLACK

1904



\J



Could I but paint the things around,
Then men would know where truth is found
But human hands full treacherous prove,
E'en when one's heart is filled with love
Of all one sees, each hour, each day.
Then let my readers hold away
Harsh censure, and with kindly heart
Take will for deed, in kindly part.

In pity spare us when we do our best

To make as much waste paper as the rest.






NOTE

The reproductions in the following pages of some
of my drawings of this great and beautiful city-
would never have appeared had it not been for
the great kindness and courtesy I have received
from all quarters where the pictures had found
homes. Let me most sincerely thank each and
all of those owners of my work who have, by so
generously placing the originals in my hands, so

well assisted me.

ROSE BARTON.
