E. W. BOWLING,
- RECTOR OF HOUGHTON CONQUEST, AND
- LATE FELLOW OF ST. JOHN'S COLLEGE, CAMBRIDGE.
- Si dulce est desipere in loco,
- ignosce nostro, blande lector, ioco.
LONGMANS, GREEN, AND CO.,
CAMBRIDGE: W. METCALFE & SON, TRINITY STREET.
A very few of the following pieces appeared in "Punch," during the Consulship of Plancus. The rest have been written by me during the past twenty-five years, under the signature of "Arculus," for "The Eagle," the Magazine of St. John's College, Cambridge. I hope their reappearance will be welcome to a few of my old College friends.
The general reader will probably think that some apology is due to him from me for publishing verses of so crude and trivial a character.
I can only say that the smallest of bows should sometimes be unstrung, and that if my little arrows are flimsy and light they will, I trust, wound no one.
E. W. BOWLING.

[Transcriber's note: The poems "In Camus" and "Father Camus" appear to be the same poem, the former in Latin; the latter in English. In the original book, they are printed on facing pairs of pages, the left-hand page Latin, the right-hand page English. In this e-text, each poem is together, and are in the same order as shown in the Table of Contents.]
