HENRY WARDLE, ESQ., J.P.
THIS VOLUME IS MOST RESPECTFULLY
AND GRATEFULLY INSCRIBED
A "MEDLEY", I call my book, and readers will say I have done right in
giving it such a name: whether I have done right publishing it, is another
question. I never, before, ventured to print anything that presumed
to treat on such a variety of subjects.
The first seven papers are composed, chiefly, of sketches
written for a small monthly periodical conducted by my valued friend, Rev.
Hugh Stowell Brown. He kindly gives me leave to make use of them;
and I have done so--with some alterations.
The Second Series of Letters to Yound Working Men, I am
allowed to republish by my old and kind friend, Joesph Cowen, M.P.,--to
whom the Northern Tribune belonged.
