IN PROSE AND VERS E.

LONDON:

EDWARD MOXON, DOVER STREET.

MDCCCXXXIV.

LONDON:

BRADBURY AND EVANS, PRINTERS, WHITEFRIARS.

The Author of the following pages hopes to be excused

for telling the reader, that they were written during

a few short intervals of leisure, which he has employed

rather in deriving instruction and amusement from the

works of others, than in attempting to afford either by

his own.

Several of his Letters having been published without

his knowledge, he has thought it best to print a few

others, both in prose and verse.

Being, of course, in the possession of his friends,

they might (however insignificant) appear hereafter,

when he could no longer correct them; and the dates

of some will show that he has no time to lose.

Vesper * * admonuit.”
