[But it isn't the end. There is, after the Contents, an]

APPENDIX* TO VOLUME VI.

* The Reader who brings with him an inclination to be pleased will not censure me for the awkward arrangement of the few following poems, which came to hand too late to be properly incorporated. And if, after all, they are though to add more to the bulk than the merit of the volume, let it be recollected that they do not add to the price. N.


Notes
