PRINTED BY R. ALLEN, ALBION OFFICES, NOTTINGHAM

PREFACE.

On May-day of last year the Jolly Boat was first launched upon the tide of popular favour-since then it has made twelve successful monthly cruises—and now the several reckonings are collected together, so as to form a Journal to excite the risible faculties, and to awaken human sympathy-sunshine and showers—a smile and a tear—a broad grin, and a look of commiseration—all calculated to harmonize the mind, and render

man a friend to man.

Such has been the Editor's design: and he trusts that, together with the Artist, he has fully succeeded in his endeavours to gratify the Public. To the Friends who have assisted his efforts, and held on by the sheets, he begs to tender his grateful acknowledgments—we ha all rowed in the same Boat-all pulled together—and though now separated, he trusts that it will not be long before every man has his oar again in the row-lock, and stretching out with a hearty good will.
