  PREFACE

  In the translation of "Heimatlos" an effort has been made to hold asfar as possible to the original, in order to give the reader ofEnglish the closest possible touch with the story as it stands in theGerman. This method retains the author's delightful simplicity, and itleaves revealed, even in her roundabout way of telling things, hercharming adaptability as a writer for children.

  The adult reader will pardon the repetitions, where the same thoughtis expressed in different ways, when it is remembered that the authoris making doubly sure of reaching the understanding of the young mind.The literal rendering has been sacrificed only in a few instances, andthen because of local idioms and national standards.

  It is the hope of the translator that these two stories, so widelyread by the children of Germany, will help our own little ones, inthese days of general prosperity, to appreciate the everyday comfortsof home, to which they grow so accustomed as often to take them forgranted, with little evidence of gratitude.
