DEDICATION.

* London, August 6, 1844. MY DEAR LORD,

In acknowledging and returning my grateful thanks to your Lordship for your permission to dedicate to you this, my first appearance in print, I am not wholly without fear that by such honourable patronage, the public may be led to expect better things. I am induced to think that some of these events and anecdotes, occurring in a country so strange and new to all Europe, may be worth recording;

the same amusement in perusing these pages that

I rejoice in every opportunity of assuring your

Lordship that I have a grateful sense of your

continued kindness towards me; and

I have the honour to remain,
My dear Lord,
Very faithfully yours,
ARTHUR, CUNYINGHAME.
