The New Zealand Survey


page break“New Zealand Survey”: Prospectus page.


PoetryAlthough having somewhat exceeded the original estimated dimensions of this volume, still the Minstrel’s Budget is not yet emptied. If all is well, by the next new year, may be expected another offering, containing, “A Descant on Thought,” a poem in two cantoes; also “The Great Problem of 1861,” a Dream in the Hutt stockade; “The Teapot and the Brandy Bottle,” an allegory; with other Poems and Lyrics of local interest.

And should circumstances allow, other works may follow of a different nature in prose and poetry; among which may appear “The Progress of Piety” a poem in fifteen cantoes,—several extracts of which were given in “The Christian Advocate,” a serial some time ago published in Wellington.
