In his preface, Downey writes that Lever planned in 1839 a volume of tales and essays to be called "Harry Lorrequer's Log," building on the success of The Confessions of Harry Lorrequer (1839) but James McGlashan, his publisher, was not keen, preferring to keep Lever at work on what would be Charles O'Malley (1841).

They appeared as unsigned contributions to Irish periodicals, and they exhibit Lever in most of his early, and wayward, phases."
