The Mysterious Wanderer; Vol. II

by Sophia Reeve

'I am aware,' says our fair writer in her advertisement, 'that my Story has many imperfections; but it being a first essay, and having been written solely for my own amusement, during a winter season, will plead with a liberal public, to soften the severity of criticism. The publication is attributed to the 'partial wishes of a few friends.' To the wishes of those friends who have the happiness of advising the author of the Mysterious Wanderer, we take the liberty of joining our own, that many winters may be passed in writing many tales of equal value with the present. The most prominent error that occurred to us, appeared to arise rather from an exuberance, than want of fancy, which enabled the writer to introduce so many episodes, that the main light becomes in some instances overpowered by the glare of detached parts.
