OF

MY WARDSHIP.

BY MARY CATHERINE JACKSON.

"Looks of familiar love, that never more,
Never on earth our aching eyes shall meet,
Past words of welcome to our household door
And vanish'd smiles, and sounds of parted feet-
Spring! 'midst the murmurs of thy flowering trees,
Why, why revivest thou these?"

[blocks in formation]

Printed by Schulze and Co., 13, Poland Street.

ΤΟ

JAMES AUGUSTUS ST. JOHN, ESQ.,

I DEDICATE

"THE STORY OF MY WARDSHIP."

IT IS AN HUMBLE OFFERING,

BUT I TRUST HE WILL ACCEPT IT

AS A SLIGHT ACKNOWLEDGMENT OF

KINDNESS RECEIVED AT HIS HANDS,

AND AS A GENUINE TRIBUTE

OF RESPECT, ADMIRATION AND ESTEEM

OFFERED TO

THE ELEGANT AUTHOR OF

"ISIS."
