Excerpt from Airedale in Ancient Times; Elwood and Elvina; The Poacher: And Other Poems
The publication has been delayed so longbeyond the time appointed for its appearance, that he feels an apology due to his subscribers; and this he hopes they will accept, when informed, th... at the delay has not been caused by himself, but has been occasioned by a most melancholy occurrence, namely, the untimely death (by hydrophobia) of the gentleman who had undertaken to furnish the engravings, and which made it necessary for him to employ another artist. Having offered these explanations, he now submits his feeble efforts to the candour of his friends, trusting they will exercise that forbearance, which a mind, sen sibly alive to feelings of gratitude, cannot fail to appreciate.
