After ' organic' add 'and inorganic,' as C and W contained the embryotic 'da mater cyntaf of their living creatures, page 164; after ' importation,' read 'or' instead of ' and,' p. 184.
Other errors, probably, of a similar character, may have crept in, which, of course, cannot affect the scholar and the object to be represented to the mind according to the context. I have, also, to point out the loss and intermingling of Hebrew letters in the only case or fount in use in Victoria, such as the mem for teth, and he for cheth, and so forth; but, to avert this most serious difficulty, I have associated the Cimmerian sounds of the Hebrew letters, so that any error—such, for instance, as the mem being put for he in the term zeher, at page 202—can be easily detected, and explained in others as they may occur. This anomaly will, however, be shortly remedied.
"To all apparent beauties blind,
"Each blemish strikes an envious mind."
I feel much pleasure, at the end of this first journey, in sincerely thanking Mr. Gibbs, (of the firm of Clarson, Shallard, & Co.,) for his unflagging zeal, and attention and mastery of classic readings, in getting through the Press a work of so many lingual and symbolical difficulties with such a comparative paucity of errors, independently of other serious and material drawbacks to its issue on the page of life.
"Nature, enchanting Nature, in whose form
"And lineaments divine I trace a hand
"That errs not, and find raptures still renew'd,
"Is free to all men—universal prize!
"Strange that so fair a creature should yet want
"Admirers, and be destined to divide
"With meaner objects ev'n the few she finds."—Cowper.
Mr, Chairman, Vice-chairman, And Cimbric Friends,—
I want you all to migrate, in imagination, as our forefathers did in reality at one time, to the "cradled lands" of the Cimbri, whether in the Caucasian or Crimean range of hill and dale, or on the plains of Asia Minor, and the isles of the great sea! at another to the immemorial scenes of fatherland, the isles of the sea—the isles of the west, of the early Hebrews, the far west of the Greeks, and concentrate your attention on this triad of great import, Cymro, Cymry, a Chymraeg—Welshman, Wales, and the Welsh (or Cimmerian or Cimbric) language, whilst I endeavour to throw, if possible, a scattering gleam of light on a congeries of some subjects never before handled or touched upon, as far as I am aware: also, on events long antecedent to the foundation of Assyrian, Persian, Grecian, or Roman greatness; on facts and ideas drawn out of well-accredited written authorities, as Cymbric, Hebraic, Sanskrit, Egyptian, and other languages, sacred and profane, as well as out of the unlettered yet truth-speaking coins of ages, and the very stones and trees and plants of silent earth itself, with I trust, appropriate logical deductions made therefrom ; on circumstances contemporary with the early Prophets of Israel, with the poets and philosophers of Greece and Rome, and the early dawn of Christianity, and its pregnant results as regard our own race and language in its onward blessed course to us; and then endeavour to develope some of the untold inestimable realities of Bardic lore, as corroborative of external history in many divergent points, while far surpassing them in others, in the race of time and truth; and, finally, to take a rapid sketch of our immortal language in its force and pathos, as exemplified in the laws, poetry, and beliefs
