Entered according to Act of Congress in the year 1864, by
GEO. W. CARLETON,

in the Clerk's Office of the District Court for the Southern District of New York.

TRIMMED WITH HOPE AND MANNED WITH FEARS,

THIS BARQUE OF MINE SAILS FORTH ALONE, INTO THE DANGEROUS SEA OF

FICTION.

I WRITE UPON ITS PROW THE NAME OF

NELSON,

WISEST OF COUNSELLORS, MOST FAITHFUL OF FRIENDS, KINDEST OF

BROTHERS;

AND BENEATH HIS,

AS UNDER THE LOVING SHADOW OF A GREAT SOUL,
MY TWO DARLINGS,

ERNEST AND ALICE.

WHETHER THE LITTLE BARQUE BE MOORED AT LAST IN THE WORLD'S HEART, OR LOST ON ITS STORMY ATLANTIC,

THESE DEAR NAMES,

EVER ENWREATHED WITH MEMORY'S BRIGHTEST AUREOLA,

SHALL GO FORTH WITH MINE,

TOGETHER.
