TO

THE HONORABLE

WILLIAM FREDERICK CAMPBELL.

MY DEAR SON,

As you are not to inherit from me great possessions, or a name illustrated by long official career, I inscribe this work to you, in the hope that it may prove to you a lesson of true labour.

I have hitherto had much reason to rejoice in the progress

of

your studies; and when you return from viewing foreign cities and manners, I shall hope to see you struggling to confer benefits on your country, while you lay the foundation of a lasting reputation for yourself. Thus I shall be more gratified than by any power or distinction I myself could have acquired, and you will render contented and happy the declining years of —

Your ever affectionate Father,

CAMPBELL.

Nov. 1. 1845.
