	Note.-The Author of "Typee" was more than two years in the South Seas, after escaping from the valley, as recounted in the last chapter. Some time after returning home the foregoing narrative was published, though it was little thought at the time that this would be the means of revealing the existence of Toby, who had long been given up for lost. But so it proved. The story of his escape supplies a natural sequel to the adventure, and as such it is now added to the volume. It was related to the Author by Toby himself.

investment.

confuting him.
CHAPTER XXV. 	The Cosmopolitan makes an acquaintance.
CHAPTER XXVI. 	Containing the metaphysics of Indian-hating, according to the views of one
evidently not so prepossessed as Rousseau in favor of savages.

CHAPTER XXXVII. 	The mystical master introduces the practical disciple.
CHAPTER XXXVIII. 	The disciple unbends, and consents to act a social part.
CHAPTER XXXIX. 	The hypothetical friends.
CHAPTER XL. 	In which the story of China Aster is, at second-hand, told by one who, while not
disapproving the moral, disclaims the spirit of the style.

CHAPTER XLII. 	Upon the heel of the last scene, the Cosmopolitan enters the barber's shop, a
benediction on his lips.
CHAPTER XLIII. 	Very charming.
CHAPTER XLIV. 	In which the last three words of the last chapter are made the text of the discourse,
which will be sure of receiving more or less attention from those
readers who do not skip it.
CHAPTER XLV. 	The Cosmopolitan increases in seriousness.
