A Fairy Tale for a Land-Baby


A water-baby? You never heard of a water-baby.

Perhaps not. That is the very reason why this story was written.

There are a great many things in the world which you never heard of and a great many more which nobody ever heard of; and a great many things, too, which nobody will ever hear of..........

How do you know that? Have you been there to see? And if you had been there to see, and had seen none, that would not prove that there were none. If Mr. Garth does not find a fox in Eversley Woodas folks sometimes fear he never will—that does not prove that there are no such things as foxes. And as is Eversley Wood to all the woods in England, so are the waters we know to all the waters in the world. And no one has a right to say that no water-babies exist, till they have seen no water-babies existing; which is quite a different thing, mind, from not seeing water-babies; and a thing which nobody ever did, or perhaps ever will do.

"But surely if there were water-babies, somebody would have caught one at least?"

Well. How do you know that somebody has not?
