THE AUTHOR OF “TAKEN UPON TRUST.”
“Speak of me as I am ; nothing extenuate,
250. s. 144.
To the Readers of this, not wholly imaginary, but
somewhat hastily-written Tale, these pages are dedi
cated; and if, during their perusal, it should occur to
some, that zeal in a good cause may have outrun dis
cretion, the Author can only hope that a thousand
faults may be forgiven, in the name of the one virtue
to which he has dared to link them.
