  • Author's note: August 10, 1842
  • At head of poem: SIR, Being a Juror at the late Quarter Sessions, my attention was attracted by the enclosed lines, written with a pencil on the woodwork of the jury-box; as clearly as I could decifer them, they are now before you if you deem them worthy, perhaps you will allow them a corner in your valuable journal. Truly, if the writer were a Juror, instead of well and truly trying and true deliverance making between his Sovereign Lady the Queen and the prisoner at the bar, he was well and truly trying and deliverance making between the Queen of his affections and his poetic genius.
