|About the Book|
I sat fishing. I had not caught anything, of course-I rarely do, nor am I fond of fishing in the very smallest degree, but I fished assiduously all the same, because circumstances demanded it. It had all come about through Lady Warburton, Lisbeths maternal aunt. Who Lisbeth is you will learn if you trouble to read these veracious narratives-suffice it for the present that she has been an orphan from her youth up, with no living relative save her married sister Julia and her Aunt (with a capital A)-the Lady Warburton aforesaid.
