General note"Sensible that much of the frivolity discoverable in the manners and fashions of modern females, arises from an improper course of reading, the author has endeavoured, in the following little volume, to present the youth of her own sex a succedaneum to the fascinating page of romance, and the dangerous luxury of novels. The following letters were originally addressed to an affectionate young friend in New- England, whose kindness has proved a solace in many trials the author has been called to encounter. ... The poems found in this little volume, were chiefly written to abstract the mind of the author from painful recollections."--Preface, p. [iii]-vi, signed and dated at Mendon, New-York, Sept. 1815.
General note"The author of the preceding letters is happy to be able, in this edition, to present her readers the following, written at a later period, to a friend, whose kind attentions have been gratefully received, and will long be remembered."--p. [135], signed C.M.T. "Letters to Miss B---"--p. [137]-158, signed and dated at Canandaigua, June 1818.
General note"Poems on various occasions, by Caroline Matilda Thayer."--p. [159]-220. "The three following little pieces were written at different periods, when the author was smarting under the bereavement of an only child."--p. [161]. Includes a hymn.
