Excerpt from the Preface:The story of "Ten Times One" and the other sketches and stories in this volume belong together. The reader will find in its place the briefest possible account of the life of Frederic William Greenleaf, the Harry Wadsworth of that book. With no expectation of mine, the parable of the story took form immediately in actual life. Miss Ella Elizabeth Russell, of New York, in the end of May, 1870, read this story to a class of boys whom she met every Sunday, in a Sunday School. They were of different ages from thirteen to seventeen. She writes of them, "they felt that they were too old to go to any Mission School, but the idea of a Club to meet Sunday afternoons seemed a more grown-up affair. I had read them the story of Harry Wadsworth and as the class was ten in number, they decided to call themselves the Harry Wadsworth Helpers, to adopt the "Four Mottoes."
