PUBLISHERS' NOTE
Nights With Uncle Remus is a story-book dearly loved
by children. Besides that, it is an important
contribution to the study of Afro-American folk-lore,
and through many years of popularity it has carried a
long and learned Introduction, of great interest to
students but rather forbidding in aspect to youthful
readers. In this new edition, which has been prepared
especially for children, and illustrated in colors by an
artist who knows how to please them as well as their
elders, the Introduction has been omitted, but the
stories and their charming setting have been left
intact.

MR. FOX AND MISS GOOSE

The dark gray clouds had blotted out the sun, and the
leafless limbs of the tall oaks surrendered themselves
drearily to the fantastic gusts that drove the drizzle
fitfully before them. The lady to whom Uncle Remus
belonged had been thoughtful of the old man, and
'Tildy, the house-girl, had been commissioned to carry
him his meals. This arrangement came to the
knowledge of the little boy at supper time, and he lost
no time in obtaining permission to accompany 'Tildy.
Uncle Remus made a great demonstration over the
thoughtful kindness of his "Miss Sally."
"Ef she ain't one blessid w'ite 'oman," he said, in his
simple, fervent way, "den dey ain't none un um 'roun'
in deze parts."
With that he addressed himself to the supper, while
the little boy sat by and eyed him with that familiar
curiosity common to children. Finally the youngster
disturbed the old man with an inquiry:—
