For those wishing to know: the last of the known extant pamphlets of the 
rustic poet of Norwich, circa 1810.  This one is puzzling in that from the 
pagination it appears to be four pamphlets bound together, but the title 
page of the first pamphlets covers the contents of the others.  Everyone 
who has looked at it cannot make it out.  My guess is that Parkerson 
couldn't afford the printing costs for a "book", and instead had the 
pamphlets done at different times and eventually bound.

All the best,
England, misty rain and growing dark
