The author of this little book would assure her youthful readers, that the songs and ballads of which it is composed, all have the charm of truth. They were written on various occasions for the amusement and instruction of her own children, whom they have so much interested, that she is induced to give them a wider range, hoping that many young
receive from them the same pleasant influences.
