FRANCIS JEFFREY, Esq.

Sir,

I BEG leave to dedicate this Compilation to you. For the satisfaction of the inquisitive, I say that, respect for your character and opinions, the instruction and pleasure which I have derived from your Works, your attention to Education in general, and to Elocution in particular, your desire to give every literary subject a candid hearing, are the motives which have urged me to trespass upon your attention. Had it been a work of much greater importance than it really can pretend to be,

SIR,
With much respect,

Your most obedient Servant,
