<p TEIform="p">ALTHOUGH the writer of these pages, previously to quitting her native land, received the most flattering encouragement from one of the first booksellers in London, to publish a Volume of Poems, she pleads the pressure of circumstances as her only apology for intruding on the notice of the public.—She trusts that a charitable allowance will be made for defects of which she is conscious, the poems having been written during seasons unfavorable to composition, of severe domestic calamity, and bodily suffering. Several of them were suggested by the singular reverses of fortune, which it has of late, been the writer's portion to experience. While with sincere and grateful acknowledgment she looks over the highly respectable and numerous List of Names affixed to the volume, she is led to indulge a hope, that as the <hi TEIform="hi">first</hi> who has ventured to lay claim to the title of Authoress, in Sydney, she will be favored with a continuation of patronage and support.</p>
