OR,

RECOLLECTIONS AND REFLECTIONS OF AN ANGLER

FOR THE LAST FIFTY YEARS.

Jan Socke

The magic wand then let us wield,
For ance that five-and-forty speeld,
See crazy, weary, joyless eild,

Wi' wrinkled face,
Comes hosten-birplin owre the field,

Wi' creepin' pace

Like Junius, I dedicate this little Book to

The Public.

I did not think, when I wrote it for my Sons, "away from the din and turmoil of London' (to be laid by for some future time), that I should so soon see it in print. This has been solely at the request of a friend who is not an angler. As I owe no man anything but love, I hope they will temper any observation they perhaps make on it with the same virtue; and

I remain,

Their most obedient Servant,

JAMES LOCKE.
