"In writing the following short treatise on Lawn Tennis, I have borne in mind one great object, namely, to make the subject as clear, and as easy to understand as possible, even at the risk of repeating the same phrases over again.
The chapters dealing with the historical portion of the subject have purposefully been curtailed, only the briefest outline of its history, &c., being given, as the book is intended to be purely a practical one."
