or

THE RIGHT HONOURABLE

THE LADY JANE SWINBURNE,

[ocr errors][merged small]

My Dear Young Friends,

It is not my purpose to detain you with a long preface, because I am aware that long prefaces are seldom read; but I wish to inform you that I have written this book, as I did my publication of last year, in the humble hope of being useful to those in whom I am so anxiously interested. I am myself happy in acknowledging the endearing appellation of" Mother," and I love all children, and regard them as priceless treasures, entrusted to the care and guidance of parents and teachers; with whom it rests in a great measure to render them blessings to their fellow-creatures, and happy themselves, or contrariwise.

Should the perusal of this little volume imbue you with a taste for the beautiful and ennobling science of Geography, my object will be gained; and that such may be the result of these humble endeavours is the sincere wish of

Your affectionate Friend,

Fanny Osborne.

London,
February, 1850.
