If circumstances will allow, I will try to have it ready by about the beginning of January next.—I remember seeing in one of our local newspapers, some time ago, a notice of a small work, of some 96 pages, which said–“The binding was done by Mr.——, and the printing was done at our jobbing office;”—but not a word of any kind was said about the spirit of the Author, or to give a welcome to an addition to our local literature! As regards this book, both the printing and the binding have been done by the Author himself, in each case, as an amateur.
