PREFACE.

The Author appears, on this occasion, in a new walk of literature. The hero he has chosen for

his volumes has little of that romance in his character which is usually to be found in the heroes of modern novels. Such personages as Joseph Jenkins are everywhere to be met with; and that is the main reason why the Author has made him the hero of his pages. The leading design of the book will, it is hoped, be evident to all. It is to point out the necessity of moral and religious principles, even to present happiness. It only remains to be added, that though

the incidents recorded in these volumes did

not take place in the precise order which the Author has assigned them, nor, in every instance, in the experience of the persons with whom he has connected them—they have this recommendation in their favour, that they are,

one and all, founded on fact.

London, Nov. 1842.
