Excerpt from Lancashire Legends: Selected From Roby's "Traditions of Lancashire"

Our hope in preparing this volume has been to bring back to Lancashire people a portion of a book which ought, we believe, to be familiar to them. We have not hesitated to abridge many passages and to recast others. Roby's style, generally digni fied and even beautiful at times, is often too slow and too diffuse: he uses too many words, and his words are frequently too long. We have thought that even for studious and leisurely readers the stories might gain point and power if they were made shorter; and we have had it, as part of our ambition, to attract readers, who being young may be neither studious nor leisurely; and these we trust will forgive us for what we have done, and thank Roby for what he did long ago.
