RIGHT HONOURABLE

WILLIAM WINDHAM, M. P.

SIR,

A DEDICATION is so generally considered merely as a solicitation for patronage, or pecuniary reward, that I think it necessary to disclaim being actuated by either of those motives in my present address to you. I inscribe these Volumes to you as a sincere, though feeble token of the profound respect which I feel for your character. I inscribe them to the Statesman whose rectitude, foresight, vigilance, and wisdom, deserve the loudest applause of that country, in the service of which they have incessantly been exerted. Could I have discovered any one who possessed these high qualities in a superior degree to yourself, I should not, in this dedication, have had the honour of declaring myself,

Your very obedient,
and very humble Servant,

THE EDITOR.
May 26th, 1804.
