(As printed in the original)

This little volume is one of six books written by Robert W. Spencer for his grandchildren; Keith Cuddeback, Kevin Cuddeback, Sarah Suozzi, Samuel Spencer, Micah Suozzi, and Elizabeth Spencer. Each book has been addressed to one child. They are written so that each grandchild will have a way of knowing something about their grandfather Spencer and the way he saw the world. It is hoped that in time each grandchild will find time to have a conversation with his or her grandfather by writing comments in the blank space provided after each comment.

Each parent should decide the appropriate age for the child to receive this book. Having had some involvement with the upbringing and insight into the character of at least half of the parents concerned, I am content to rely on their judgment in this matter.
