PREFACE.

In the two previous volumes of this work, I have given some account of my life and early recollections. I now put down some other particulars—some from my early boyhood—possessing, I am aware, no value in themselves, and of no public interest, beyond that which time confers upon them.

The Songs are specimens of old fashioned poetry, -as Isaac Walton says, “ Choicely good”—to which I have composed appropriate airs. My anecdotes may now see the light without offence, the incidents to which they refer having occurred so far back as nearly to be forgotton.

My love of Music has not been chilled with advancing years; as may be seen in the thoughts I have let drop upon that science in this, my final

volume.

Leicester, 1853.
