TO HER GRACE,

The Duchess of St. Albans,

THE FOLLOWING POEMS

ARE MOST RESPECTFULLY INSCRIBED,

BY HER GRACE'S

VERY OBLIGED AND GRATEFUL SERVANT,

ANNE RI TER.

IN submitting the following collection of

Poems to the ordeal of public taste, the Author

trusts that the severity of criticism may be dis

armed by the humility of their pretentions,aspiring only to supply a few “way-side flowers," to those lovers of poetry, who, on turning aside in some musing hour from the busy paths of life, may perchance find sentiments amongst them in accord

ance with their own.

They are intended, as far as their influence

can extend, to incite to all that is “pure, lovely,

and of good report ;” and to further the cause of

Religion and Morality.

They are left to the candid judgment of those who have so kindly enabled the Author to

present them before the public, and to whom, she

tenders her sincere thanks.

KIRTON-LINDSEY, March, 1841.
