APIBLTO

COLLOQUIES,

DESULTORY, BUT

CHIEFLY UPON POETRY AND POETS;

BETWEEN

AN ELDER, ENTHUSIASTIC,

AND AN APOSTLE OF THE LAW.

“One caveat, good Reader, and then God speed thee!--Do not open it at
adventures, and by reading the broken pieces of two or three lines, judge it;
but read it through, and then I beg pardon if thou dislikest it. Farewell !"

T. ADAMS.

CONSIDERATION

IS BESOUGHT FOR THE FOLLOWING PAGES, ON THE PLEA THAT THEY

EMBODY WHAT IS PRESUMED TO HAVE BEEN THE FIRST UNWRITTEN

водк.

FROM SUCH AS MAY NOT PEREMPTORILY REFUSE TO HEAR

MORE OF THIS MATTER IS INTREATED THE EXTRAORDINARY BOON

OF A PERUSAL OF THE PRELUDE DEDICATORY.—THE MECHANICAL

SINGULARITY THEREIN ADVERTED TO, IS NOT CLAIMED FOR THIS

EDITION, WHICH CONTAINS ADDITIONS TO THE

ORIGINAL VOLUME.

BUT FOR A SENTENCE TANTAMOUNT TO “ REPRINT," PRONOUNCED

OVER THE FORMER PAGES BY PRESIDENTS IN THE REPUBLIC OF

LETTERS, THEY MIGHT NOT HAVE RE-PRESENTED THEMSELVES IN

BOOK-SHAPE ON A THRONGED STREAM, WHEREIN NONE BUT THE

STRONG MAY SWIM.

STILL THE NOVEL SPECIES OF REMORÆ THAT

IMPEDED THEIR FIRST APPEARANCE ON THE SURFACE, MAY POSSIBLY

NOW HELP THEM INTO A SURER CURRENT TO THE HAVEN OF THX

READER'S FAVOR.
