Excerpt from Fits of Folly, or the Aberrations of a Philosopher These verses were written on various occasions, and without any design for publication, during the present Long Vacation. Every subject, except one, was successively suggested by passing circumstances. For instance, the Author was requested by a great political and financial character to "try his hand" upon the "Repeal of the Union," and the song styled "John Bull" was the consequence of that trial. "Pro and Con" was scribbled while waiting at an Hotel for the appearance of a friend, and to this gave rise the conversation of two gentlemen in an adjacent box. The trifle "'T has always been my way" was introduced by a laughable incident which occurred in the Zoological Gardens. "Mary, canst thou care for me," arose from a bashful friend, as talented as timid, formerly of Trinity College with the author, having made love to the lady who now blesses him with abundant happiness, in the following strain: - Mr. V. (As they walked to the Catholic Chapel to hear the music) "Can you care for me?" About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
