Notes Unverified, no copy has been found, possibly because it was inexpensive, advertised as a "Cheap Edition, price 1s. for single copies, and 6d. each, if 25 or more are ordered." The third edition includes a postscript of the second edition. Susanna Moodie transcribed and revised, however sparingly, Prince's narrative.
