A Vanished Arcadia
by R. B. Cunninghame Graham
[Robert Bontine Cunninghame Graham.  1852-1936.]

By R. B. Cunninghame Graham
Author of "Mogreb-El-Acksa", etc.

                         I DEDICATE
                   THIS SHORT ACCOUNT OF

                     A VANISHED ARCADIA

                      TO THE AUTHOR OF

            `SANTA TERESA, HER LIFE AND TIMES',

                     BEING CERTAIN THAT
    THE LIFE OF ALL SAINTS IS TO THEM AND US AN ARCADIA;
    UNKNOWN TO THEM AND TO US VANISHED WITH THEIR LIVES,
     YET STILL REMEMBERED, FITFULLY AS ARE THE JESUITS
              IN PARAGUAY, BY A FEW FAITHFUL,
WHEN THE ANGELUS WAKES RECOLLECTION IN THE INDIANS' HEARTS.
          BUT, THEN, THE ANGELUS (EVEN OF MEMORY)
            IS TO THE MOST PART OF MANKIND ONLY
             A JANGLING OF AN ANTIQUATED BELL.
