Advertisement. [To the widowed mourner] The author of the following lines, for some time after the decease of the truly excellent lady, whose virtues he now attempts to delineate, fully intended, (as far as in him lay) to do justice to her very dear memory; but the desultory state he has constantly been in, since that melancholy event took place, has hitherto prevented his carrying such his intensions into execution. In the beginning of the present month he composed the following lines, which are only a very small part of the intended poem. To three amiable ladies of his acquaintance he had given copies of what he had so composed; the contents whereof were made, which he could not find time to write out. He has, therefore, caused a few copies to be printed, for the gratification and amusement of the circle of ladies he has honour to be known to; each of whom he entreats not to permit any copy to be taken from printed copy; as the poem is as present in an unfinished and incomplete state. J.G.; [8] p.
