The "Lady of the Manor" is the general title of a Series of Tales, or Conversations, hy Mrs. Sherwood, as the "Tales of a Grandfather," hy Sir Walter Scott, is the leading title of a Collection of Historic Pictures, forming a connected History. The subjects of Mrs. Sherwood's Conversations are not only deeply interesting, but of a highly moral and religious character, having for their foundation the Precepts of the Ten Commandments, and of the Church Catechism. These are successively illustrated in the Conversations.

The Lady of the Manor is the gifted and devout instructress of the young ladies who surround her, and her teachings have for their main object the subject of Confirmation, and are addressed especially to Young Females.

The Lady of the Manor, in the more expensive editions, acquired great popularity; and it is now, for the first time, published in a cheaper form, in the hope of a largely extended circulation among those classes whom it is so eminently calculated to interest and benefit.

London, November, 1859.
