PREFACE.

I cannot forego my usual opportunity of saying farewell to my readers in this greeting-place, thouh I have only to acknowledge the unbounded warmth and earnestness of their sympathy in every stage of the journey we have just concluded.

If any of them have felt a sorrow in one of the principal incidents on which this fiction turns, I hope it may be a sorrow of that sort which endears the sharers in it, one to another. This is not unselfish in me. I may claim to have felt it, at least as much as anybody else; and I would fain be remembered kindly for my part in the experience.


Devonshire Terrace,
Twenty-Fourth March, 1848.
