PREFACE.

THE EDITORS of "Acrostics in Prose and Verse" have met with so many entreaties to provide a new supply for the amusement of the approaching winter evenings, that, though rather afraid of exhausting the patience of the public, they venture to issue another volume, which they hope may meet with as kind a reception as its predecessors. They have this time to thank several new contributors for their valuable assistance, but some apparently new initials are those of old friends, who have now begun to use their real signatures.

A. E. H.

November 1866.
