We want to take this opportunity of making acknowledgment to Mr. G. P. BROWN for placing at the disposal of the Committee administering this fund, the verses contained in this Volume.
Whilst the War lasts all profits arising from the sale of them, and any subsequent issues, will be devoted to the Funds being raised here for British Patriotic purposes, and we want to place on record our appreciation of Mr Brown's generosity.
We are not perhaps competent to judge the literary merits of the Poems but they do seem to us worthy enough to see the light of day. The time of publication is also very appropriate as some of them express very suitably the sentiments which many of us feel in this moment of trial for our Empire.
