LIFE, WRITINGS, AND GENIUS

OF

A KENSIDE:

WITH

SOME ACCOUNT OF HIS FRIENDS.

BY CHARLES BUCKE,

AUTHOR OF THE BEAUTIES, HARMONIES, AND SUBLIMITIES OF

NATURE.

- “ The spacious west,
And all the teeming regions of the south,
Hold not a quarry to the curious flight
Of knowledge, half so tempting and so fair
As MAN to MAN.”

Pleasures of Imagination.

TO

JOSEPH M‘CREA, ESQ.

DEAR SIR, To whom can I dedicate these pages with so much propriety, as to One, whose surgical skill preserved the life of a son; and to whose never-sleeping kindness and consideration I have been indebted, on a thousand different occasions ?

“No years can wash these grateful thoughts away!”

I would have sought leave to signify my respect; but I would not be denied. Accept, then, this memorial as it is meant; and believe me to be,

Your very faithful
and affectionate friend,

THE AUTHOR.
