SMALL CLUBS IN COUNTRY PARISHES.
BY MRS. BOWLES,
OF BREMHILL RECTORY.
The short and siinple annals of the poor.
PRINTED FOR C. J. G. AND F. RIVINGTON,
62. st. PAUL'S CHURCH YARD,
THE MARCHIONESS OF LANSDOWNE.
When the following trifles were written, many years ago,
and printed singly, Your Ladyship expressed your approbation of them; and now, having been persuaded to collect them together, and add some new matter, I know no one to whom with so much propriety I could dedicate this unpretending little book as to her who takes so active an interest in the concerns of humble life, and by whose benevolence so many of the young in this neighbourhood are instructed and clothed, and the old and poor visited and relieved. That you may long live to dispense joy and gladness to all around you, is the earnest wish of
Obliged and faithful friend,
BREMHILL, 3d May, 1831.
