THE STOLEN WILL!

An American Novel.

BY

MARY W. JANVRIN.

'Tis to create, and in creating live
A being more intense, that we endow
With form our fancy, gaining as we give
The life we image, even as I do now.
What am I? Nothing: but not so art thou,
Soul of my thought !

BYRON.

MISSED ON EARTH,

WHENCE THE ANGELS BECKONED HER FROM MY SIDE AS WE CLIMBED

I DEDICATE THIS OFFSPRING,

BORN OF THOUGHT AND IMAGINATION,

CHRISTENED "PEACE.'
