Excerpt from Ornamental and Domestic Poultry: Their History and Management

But a student is sometimes the best teacher of any branch of knowledge, as far as he has himself advanced in it, because he has a fresh recollection of the questions which gave him the most trouble to solve and therefore notes were made, mentally, and on paper, from time to time. It was afterwards encouragingly suggested that the publication of them might be ventured upon, as being possibly acceptable to people requiring such information. They were offered to the editor of the Gardeners' Chro nicle, readily accepted, favourably received by the readers of that valuable paper - a class of persons whose good Opinion I must think it an honour to have obtained and the reader now holds in his hands the entire results of my present experience in that department of Natural History, in addition to what has been already published in the Agricultural Gazette. It is hoped that the need of some attempt of the kind, from some quarter, will conciliate a lenient criticism of the many errors and deficiencies with which the Author may doubtless be chargeable, whatever pains he may have taken to guard against them.
