THE very flattering reception which the Illustrations of Cowper and Burns have experienced from the Public, encourages a hope that the same liberal patronage will be extended to the present undertaking; and though we are aware that it is a maxim generally received, that living authors are of comparatively small consideration, we are happy to know that the world have, in the instance of "The Farmer's Boy," conferred on its author that generous countenance and support which perhaps equal merit has in former times sighed for in vain.
To Capel Lofft, Esq., of Troston Hall, we are much indebted for his useful communications. Mrs. Lathbury, of Levermere Magna; the Rev. Robert Fellowes, of Fakenham; and Mr. Robert Bloomfield; have equal claims upon our gratitude.
