Gypsy Smith (1860-1947)
His Life and WorkI
|Note To My Readers|
A little over three years ago this
story of my life was sent to the printers, at the request of many of my friends,
but much against my judgment; I thought the time was not ripe for its publication.
I knew tens of thousands had listened to the story from my lips, but whether
they would read it, and feel its grip, in cold type, was quite another thing.
But my fears soon vanished when the story was published; the reviewers and the
public were all kind and treated it better than I had ever hoped. I have no
doubt now that the advice of my friends was right. The story has reached people
whom I shall never see, and from whom I have had letters of thanks. From all
parts of the world have they come, telling of blessing received while reading
of the power of the Cross over the Gipsy tent.
And, now, as the book has reached its fiftieth thousand, I desire most gratefully to offer my thanks to all who have helped to make the story, in book form, such a splendid success.
