THE MAKING OF AN AMERICAN

BY JACOB A. RIIS

AUTHOR OF "HOW THE OTHER HALF LIVES," "A TEN YEARS' WAR," "OUT OF MULBERRY STREET," ETC.

WITH NUMEROUS ILLUSTRATIONS

To LAMMET

TO THE READER

The papers which form this autobiography were originally published in _The Outlook_, the chapter telling of my going "home to mother" in _The Churchman_, and parts of one or two others in _The Century Magazine_. To those who have been asking if they are made-up stories, let me say here that they are not. And I am mighty glad they are not. I would not have missed being in it all for anything.

J. A. R.

RICHMOND HILL, N.Y., October, 1901.
