Author's Preface:
As the time has come to send forth this book to the reading public, I have a very keen sense of the fact that it but faintly portrays the awful situation as found in our great centers of population. While some of our statements will be regarded by many as extravagant, and our word-pictures as overdrawn, yet as I think of it now, I have a deep and growing conviction that in our setting forth these pages we have not approximated a fair description of the real state of things as they exist today.

There are some things that cannot be exaggerated. No newspaper reporter has ever yet been able in his description to overdraw a real cyclone, and if you have ever been in one, you are quite ready to agree with me. The slime, squalor, and crime of our slimiest slums baffles all power of description; in fact, we would not, if we could, attempt to describe much that we have found of unnamable sin, shame, and crime.

For more than a quarter of a century I have at times been greatly burdened for the neglected, fallen, and poverty-stricken of this world. When but a youth I was often melted to tears and moved to deep feelings of compassion in reading the stories of London’s poor, or the street urchins of our great American cities. In all these years the story of a fallen woman has simply broken my heart, but I never imagined that God would ever honor me with the glorious privilege of being connected in any small way with a movement for the accomplishment of such an exalted work.

My primary object in setting forth these pages is the honor of God by showing positively, and with emphasis, the power of Christ to save the lowest of the low, to renew the most ruined and wrecked lives, and revive and restore the most blasted hopes.

Second, to reach the unreached, unwashed, and unchurched, and lead them to the Christ who has wrought such marvelous transformation in the lives of those whose history is given here.

Third, to give an incentive to the faith and holy activity of good people everywhere, many of whom have never been sufficiently aroused to the sense of the magnitude of sin, or the possibilities of grace. I sincerely pray Almighty God, in the name of Jesus Christ, His Son, and my Saviour, to use this book as a means to this end. Ten thousand blessings upon all who read these pages.
