“A writer of great note in the philosophical and medical world,
Bishop Horne. Discourse XLII.
PRINTED FOR J. HATCHARD AND SON,
TO THE READER.
The author of the following little tale is anxious that the salutary and impressive caution which it conveys should not be weakened through any doubts respecting the probability of the events by which this caution is enforced. He, therefore, requests the reader will be assured, and will bear in mind, that the principal transaction in this narrative is copied from a real occurrence, which, a very
years ago, attracted a considerable degree of attention; and to the facts of which the author has adhered.
