DEDICATION.

TO HIS EXCELLENCY

LIEUT.-GENERAL THE EARL OF DALHOUSIE, G. C. B.

GOVERNOR-GENERAL AND COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF OF ALL HIS

MAJESTY'S POSSESSIONS IN NORTH AMERICA, &c. &c.

Well aware, my Lord, of the effects produced by splendid talents, great personal worth, and hereditary rank, in promoting any work of benevolence, I solicited and obtained permission to dedicate the following pages to your Excellency.

It is quite unnecessary to speak here of your Lordship's deeds; they are too recent, too illustrious, too intimately connected with the history and the glory of the British Empire.

Wishing your Excellency long to enjoy a reputation thus acquired and merited,

I have the honour to remain,
Your Lordship's
Most obedient, humble servant,
JAS. BUCHANAN.

New-York, 1st May, 1821.
