Excerpt from The Canadian Girl, or the Pirate of the Lakes: A Story of the Affections

Of its existence I am fully prepared, and shall be wel' content if any thing in the form or colouring of the momentary trifle please even the passing glance of the condescending beholder. But some will say life has more serious ends than to be frittered away in creating or in beholding mere bubbles. This is true to a. Certain extent; yet even in bubbles there may be found matter of important observation. And touches of beauty sug gestives of ideas refining to the taste and softening to the disposition. The Bard of Avon found good in every thing, and so will most rightly tempered minds. If, then, my book wholly fails to yield improvement as well as gratification, let the reader share the blame.
