PREFACE

I wish to depict conditions as they

exist and reflect them in my writings.

In fact, "A Child of Sorrow" is a fragmentary

page of real life, with a &tinct

morale and personality. I believe that

personality transcends technique. There

is no doubt but that we are all after

truth and sincerity, and not dream' and

fantasy. I have woven a native story

of a local color, imbued with modern

and foreign elements,-as I want .the

best that is local and the best that is

foreign harmoniously. blendeh together

to form what is known as our National

Literature. However, I implore silence

as to the red ,lames of some of the

personae of the novel, for they are still

living, and probably you have once or

twice met or talked with them. Silence,

you know, is golden.

entertaining the thought of spending his vacation with

his friend out in the province, just as soon as he had

received his sheepskin diploma from the Provincial
