DEDICATION.

To her I dedicate this little book,

Whose kindling fancy and whose sparkling wit

Do more than aught of mine embellish it, And shed a magic charm where'er you look: To her whose fond affection could not brook

That I should such a joyless worker be

As not to share her tender sympathy, But for my sake more genial tasks forsook,

And with a patient, cheerful diligence,
Scanned the dim records of the mighty Past,
Drew with nice skill events of moment thence-

And linked them to poetic honors fast !
To my beloved wife—whom thus I greet
In this and every task, my sweet help meet!
