Excerpt from Rambles About the Country
The following Sketches of Rambles, in different parts of the Country, were prepared for the Juvenile Series of 'The School Library.' We trust, that their perusal will not only interest and instruct those, for whose benefit they were designed, but also satisfy them, that there are, in our own Country, objects of interest, equal to those of other countries of which they may read; and that there is no need of going to foreign lands, to enjoy the pleasure and gratification of witnessing grand and beautiful scenery, when so much of it is to be found at home.
A few explanatory Notes have been appended to those pages where they were needed, serving the purpose of a Glossary; and it is hoped, that no words will be found in the Volume, which the young reader, with the help of these Notes, will not be able to understand.
