Here ends my notes, as I have never kept a diary or a line in my life. It has been a queer and pleasant sensation to cast an attentive look behind into the calendar of my mind after a long and successful life.

What a vast number of events disappear in a life without leaving a trace; age modifies and changes the nature of our impressions but nevertheless does not blot them out.

Kind friend and reader, it is delicate to write of one's self; my friends have asked for my circus memoirs, and as you follow with me through the experiences I hope you enjoy them as much as I do to pass them on to you.

I wish it understood that this book was not written to fill a long-felt want, and I do not expect it to be one of the six best sellers.
