Excerpt from Kunopædia: A Practical Essay on Breaking or Training the English Spaniel or Pointer With Instructions for Attaining the Art of Shooting Flying, in Which the Latter Is Reduced to Rule, and the Former Inculcated on Principle
It is a misfortune, the consequences of which are rarely overcome by any merit whatever, on the part of an individual, whose fate it is to have his way to seek into life, after having list that parent who alone was capable of giving to him his due direction; and to whose fostering care, in the performance of which duty, a child becomes scarcely less indebted, than it has already been for its original existence. This serious truth will apply in a manner still more forcibly to a man's literary offspring. A posthumous work has all the difficulties of the orphan to contend with.
