HIS ROYAL HIGHNESS
THE PRINCE OF WALES,
FOLLOWING PRODUCTIONS OF EARLY YOUTH
[BY HIS ROYAL HIGHNESS'S GRACIOUS PERMISSION]
MOST HUMBLY INSCRIBED
BY HIS ROYAL HIGHNESS'S HIGHLY OBLIGED
AND MOST GRATEFUL SERVANT.
The following pieces are the genuine productions of a young lady, written between the age of eight and thirteen years. By this information it is not intended to arrogate to them that favour to which they may perhaps have no intrinsic claim; but if it should appear that they possess a degree of merit sufficient to obtain the approbation of the reader, the circumstances under which they have been produced may give them that additional interest to which they are most truly intitled. They owe their publication to the kind and condescending favour of the Right Honourable Viscountess Kirkwall, to the regard and partialities of friendship, and to the hope that they may in some degree be rendered subservient to the earnest wish of the young authoress for intellectual improvement.
