While entertaining the highest respect for the labours of Mr George Borrow in this field, I have carefully avoided repeating him in the least detail- neither have I taken anything from Simson, Hoyland, or any other writer on the Rommany race in England. Whatever the demerits of the work may be, it can at least claim to be an original collection of material fresh from nature, and not a reproduction from books.

There are, it is true, two German Gypsy letters from other works, but these may be excused as illustrative of an English one.
