1) T.p. epigraph: [He that travels far oft turns aside / To view some rugged rock or mould’ring tower, / Which seen delights him.–Then coming home, / Describes and prints it, that the world may know. / So I with brush in hand and pallet spread, / Paint cards and dolls, and every idle thing / That fancy finds in her excursive flights. Cowper.]; adapted from William Cowper, The Task (1785), bk 4 ('The Winter Evening'), ll. 234-37, 239, 241-42.
2) Dedicated ‘To Lady Chatterton’ [Henrietta Georgiana Marcia Lascelles, Lady Chatterton, née Iremonger (1806–1876; ODNB), who married Dickson's maternal uncle; see also BTW1039].
