Prologue by General Jose Quevedo, Director of the Tourist Department of the Mexican Government.
Preface: We are presenting these Mexican Tales for the entertainment and the better information of the residents of Mexico, for our friends living north of the Rio Grande; for those living beyond the seas and for our friends wheresoever they may be.
It is our desire to stimulate such an interest in the history and the legends of Mexico that all who read these stories will come to visit these scenes here in our beautiful land of Romance. Our land of Mysteries and Realities.
