Reader's note

This little book is written with the intention of preserving the dialect and spirit of ‘Old Dorset’ which still survives in the heart of the Dorset people. There is a kindliness and humour about these folk which is best expressed in their native tongue. For this reason I have written a number of these stories in the dialect, which is still spoken in some of the more remote parts of the county. The characters here depicted are drawn from life but do not refer to any living persons. Dorset, which breeds these kindly folk, is surpassingly beautiful, both in coastline and wooded hill and dale. Those parts with which I am most familiar I have attempted to describe, in so doing reluctantly leaving the dialect for the language common to every other county in England.
