A Descriptive Tale

the author of "Precaution"

Extremes of habits, manners, time and space,
Brought close together, here stood face to face,
And gave at once a contrast to the view,
That other lands and ages never knew. — Paulding

Dedication[edit]

TO
JACOB SUTHERLAND,
OF BLENHEIM, SCOHARIE,
ESQUIRE.

The length of our friendship would be a sufficient reason for prefixing your name to these pages; but your residence so near the scene of the tale, and your familiarity with much of the character and kind of life that I have attempted to describe, render it more peculiarly proper. You, at least, dear Sutherland, will not receive this dedication as a cold compliment, but as an evidence of the feeling that makes me,

Warmly and truly,
      Your friend,
            —— ——
