J.1: 1932 MEMOIRS
MISS ELIZABETH SPRECKLEY,
Late of Melton Mowbray:
CHIEFLY COMPILED FROM HER DIARY AND
BY R. WOOLERTON.
COURT; MASON, 14, CITY ROAD; ALSO BY
AND ALL BOOKSELLERS,
THE Editor of this little work beseeches for his performance the candour and indulgence of the christian public. Its pretensions to literary merit, he is aware, are of a very humble character, and that blemishes will meet the
of the critic, which neither his leisure nor his materials, allowed him to remove. He wis hes that it should be tested, rather by its religious tendency, than by the rules of taste. His object is not to procure fame for himself, but to rescue from the shades of oblivion, an image of departed virtue; to perpetuate in the earth the moral existence of one, whose piety and general excellence of character, procured for her while living, the affection and esteem of her numerous acquaintance, who embalm her me. mory with their lasting regrets.
