ADVERTISEMENT TO THE READER.

Some say the PILGRIM'S PROGRESS is not mine,
Insinuating as if I would shine
In name and fame by the worth of another,
Like some made rich by robbing of their brother :
Or that, so fond I am of being sire,
I'll father bastards, or, if need require,
I'll tell a lie in print to get applause :
I scorn it ; John such dirt-heap never was
Since God converted him. Let this suffice
To shew why I my Pilgrim patronize.

It came from mine own heart; so to my head,
And thence into my fingers tickled ;
Then to my pen, from whence immediately
On paper I did dribble it daintily.

Manner and matter too were all mine own,
Nor was it unto any mortal known
Till I had done it. Nor did any then
My books, by wits, by tongues, or hand or pen
Add five words to it, or write half a line;
Therefore, the whole, and every whit is mine.
