Inscription in a copy of
In Black and White
presented to Mrs Hill







To Mrs 'Ill at Belvidere'
I 'umbly dedicate this 'ere,
An' if she do not like the same
It is the Author wot's to blame.
But if she thinks 'em rather fine
The credit 's hern an' none o' mine
Because it was her Smile wot made
Me take a pleasure in my trade.
