WHOSE REQUEST THEY WERE PRINTED,
AMUSEMENT OR APPROBATION
These TRIFLES are respectfully dedicated,
As these POEMS are never intended to meet the public eye, no apology
is necessary for the form in which they now appear. They are printed
merely for the perusal of a few friends to whom they are dedicated;
who will look upon them with indulgence; and as most of them were,
composed between the age of 15 and 17, their defects will be pardoned
or forgotten, in the youth and inexperience of the WRITER.
