Epigraph

Dedication.
Many of the following Poems having been honoured with public and repeated marks of attention from some of the most accomplished writers of the present age, when published in The Oracle, under the signature of Laura, Laura Maria, Oberon, &c. &c. the Author was induced to acknowledge, and arrange them in their present form. The illustrious, and distinguished names that appear in the list of Subscribers will prove lasting testimonies of the liberal sentiments of a published nation:--Mrs. Robinson has the particular gratification of knowing that the efforts of her pen were warmly, and honourably patronized under Feigned Signatures: had she avowed them at an earlier period the pleasure she now feels would have been considerably diminished, in the idea that the partiality of friends had procured the sanction her Poems have been favoured with from the candid and enlightened—To Whom They Are Dedicated With The Most Profound Respect.
