The Preface was not included in the original list of contents, but has been included here.

The title of the 11th story (“Seeing the last of you”) is given without quotation marks in the book’s list of contents, whilst the chapter heading(on page 121) uses quotation marks.

The title of the 12th story is given as “Two Boys at Grinder Brothers’” in the book’s list of contents, whilst the chapter heading is given as “Two boys at Grinder Bros.’” (on page 123); i.e. one uses the full word “Brothers”, whilst the other uses the abbreviation “Bros.”; both include a possessive apostrophe (as may be used in the phrase “the Grinder Brothers’ factory”).
