MY DEAR CHILDREN :
At length I yield to your reiterated requests, and present in a compact form the little breathings of affection with which my heart has often beguiled itself in addressing you. Valuable only as a proof of maternal affection, they will remind you of the past, while recalling scenes and cir 'cumstances now passed away forever—for to each little poem there is a memory known only to ourselves.
