Hi Steve,

How does this relate to Wisdom and Wonder?

Hi Simon,
What we know know as Wisdom & Wonder was originally part of the De Heraut newspaper series on common grace. When the sereis was published in the 3 vol book form (in 1902, 1903 and 1904) W&W was omitted (a publisher's mistake), so it was subsequently published in Dutch separately in 1905.
