Excerpt from The Book of Elves and Fairies: For Story-Telling and Reading Aloud and for the Children's Own Reading Robert Burns said in a lettet to Dr. Moore that in his infant and boyish days he owed much to an old woman who lived in his family; for her tales of Brownies, and Fairies, and other won ders cultivated the latent seeds of poetry in the poet's mind. And even the grave Luther said, I would not for any quantity of gold part with the wonderful tales which I have retained from my earliest childhood, or have met with in my progress through life.
