to get sufficiently far away from this Book, inthe first sensations of having finished it, to refer to it with the com-posure which this formal heading would seem to require. My inter-est in it, is so recent and strong; and my mind is so divided betweenpleasure and regret — pleasure in the achievement of a long design,regret in the separation from many companions — that I am indanger of wearying the reader whom I love, with personal confi-dences, and private emotions.Besides which, all that I could say of the Story, to any purpose, Ihave endeavoured to say in it.It would concern the reader little, perhaps, to know, how sorrow-fully the pen is laid down at the close of a two-years’ imaginativetask; or how an Author feels as if he were dismissing some portionof himself into the shadowy world, when a crowd of the creatures of his brain are going from him for ever. Yet, I have nothing else to tell;unless, indeed, I were to confess (which might be of less momentstill) that no one can ever believe this Narrative, in the reading, morethan I have believed it in the writing.
