“ True to the kindred points of heaven and home!”
GEORGE VIRTUE, 26, IVY LANE.
I HERE put forth my eighth volume of Verse, after a silence of nine years, in trustful reliance on its indulgent reception by a Public from whom I have never met with aught but courtesy and kindness.
The Poems contained in the following pages will be found, I believe, very similar, in their tone and tendency, to those published in the seven volumes which have preceded them: and the unpretending title I have given them may, I hope, serve to show that I challenge for them no higher praise than has been awarded to
WOODBRIDGE, 7th Month 5th, 1845.
