THE SPA HUNT.
A Sporting Tale.
BY THE AUTHOR OF
"JORROCKS' JAUNTS AND JOLLITIES," &c.
IN THREE VOLUMES.
HENRY COLBURN, PUBLISHER,
GREAT MARLBOROUGH STREET.
THE outline of the following tale-for novel it does not pretend to be-appeared in a sporting periodical, from whence it was freely copied in this country and reprinted in America. That, with the "laborious lassitude" of a protracted snow-storm, induced the author to try if he could make any thing better of it, and behold the result!
It is odd that, though we have knocked off these three volumes (which, by the way, contain as much as four or five, ordinary measure) with ease and rapidity, we feel rather bothered about this paltry Preface ;* but, as we have something to say, here goes.
A Preface is always printed, or generally written, last.
