Executed by JOHN JACKSON, Esq. and his brother,


Ye Finny Tribes, by Nature gay,
That sport beneath the noontide ray,
Live yel as erst (in Memory's eye)
When love was young, and hope was high :
Renew, in thought, each sylvan scene,
On which my MARY smiled serene, —
Whom but to think I once possest
Makes yet the sunshine of my breast.

* The views on the River Dove accompanying Part II. were most kindly placed at my disposal by my friend John L. ANDERDON, Esq.

CRESWICK, Esq. to make repeated visits to the LEA, in order that this edition may boast a full display of the actual scenery of both parts of this tranquillizing book.

Come enjoy these rosy bowers,
Scenes of all my happiest hours,
Aid me closer to entwine,
Joys of music, love and wine :
Now we'll fish the streamlet blithe
Whilst the meadows court the scythe,
Ev'ry thought of pomp or wealth,
Lost in joys of rosy health!
