THE REV. JAMES MARTINEAU. M.A.
AS AUTHOR OF
'ENDEAVOURS AFTER THE CHRISTIAN LIFE,'
TO WHICH, IN COMMON WITH MULTITUDES, I OWE MUCH,
AND TO WHOM
NOT ADMIRATION ONLY BUT LOVE IS FELT BY ALL OF US,
I place on the left figures 1, 2, 3, &c. in these Contents, in order to show the sequence of the Poems in the Author's Stonyhurst MS. volume. There is no title-page to it, and never has been. On the seventh page (three leaves blank) begins the Letter to his Father (pp. 29). Next three pages blank; then the Triumphs over Death (pp. 33)—the last page and half containing the Latin and English poems as printed by us (pp. 182–3). After the Latin and English verse on the Lady of the Howard family, there are other three pages blank, then comes the Preface, commencing 'Poets, by abusing,' &c. (2 pp.) Then, to the Reader, and the poems in succession as numbered. The Poems occupy 36 leaves and part of a page = 72 or 73 pages, with five blank leaves. The Prose occupies 31½ pp. G.
