The Works of Thomas Moore, Vol. 3

Excerpt from The Works of Thomas Moore, Vol. 3: Comprehending All His Melodies, Ballads, Etc. Such are the motives and accidents that led to the present publication; and as this is the first time my Muse has ever ventured out of the go cart of a newspaper, though I feel all a parent's delight at seeing little Miss go alone, I am also not without a par'ent's anxiety, lest an unlucky fall should be the consequence of the experiment; and I need not point out the many living in stances there are of Muses that have suffered severely in their heads, from taking too early and rashly to their feet. Besides, a book is so very different a thing from a newspaper - in the former, your doggerel, without either company or shelter, must stand shivering in the 'middle of a bleak white page by itself; whereas, in the latter, it is comfortably backed by advertisements, and has sometimes even a Speech of Mr. St - aph - n's or something equally warm, for a chaqfle-pie.
