THE AUTHOR TO THE READER.


It seems a foolish thing to send into the world a book requiring
a preface of apologies; and yet more absurd, to presume that any
deprecation on the part of the author could possibly win indulgence
for what should be in itself worthless.

For this reason, and with a very deep feeling of the kindness I have
already experienced from the public, I should now abandon these little
volumes to their destiny without one word of preface or remark, but
that a certain portion of their contents seems to require a little
explanation.

It was the wish and request of my friends, many months ago, that I
should collect various literary trifles which were scattered about in
print or in manuscript, and allow them to be published together. My
departure for the continent set aside this intention for the time.
