ADVERTISEMENT.

The picture of manners exhibited in the following tale, is applicable only to a particular epoch and country, and may, therefore, be said to be historical. It was not thought necessary, however, to imitate the historian in accuracy. Although some readers may detect an attempt to illustrate the less disgusting features of the bandit system, as it existed in Holland, Belgium, and the other countries of the Rhine; yet the author, in the main, was only anxious to produce an interesting romance. To shew the nature of the materials on which his slight superstructure has been raised, a note is introduced at the end, containing a bona fide account of the banditti, extracted from another of his

works.
