Further Foolishness Sketches and Satires on The Follies of The Day

by Stephen Leacock

Preface

Many years ago when I was a boy at school, we had over our class an ancient and spectacled schoolmaster who was as kind at heart as he was ferocious in appearance, and whose memory has suggested to me the title of this book.

Now, then, any further foolishness?

I find by experience that there are quite a number of indulgent readers who are good enough to adopt the same expectant attitude towards me now.

STEPHEN LEACOCK McGILL UNIVERSITY MONTREAL November 1, 1916
