JOHN H. CLIFFORD, LL.D.
ATTORNEY-GENERAL OF MASSACHUSETTS,
MY DEAR SIR,
I am sensible how little there is in this volume, to entitle it to be made the subject of any formal dedication. But I am unwilling to forego the opportunity which it affords me, of testifying how highly I value the cordial relations of friendship and confidence, which have existed between us without intermission, since we first entered public life together in 1834.
Believe me, My Dear Sir,
ROBERT C. WINTHROP, Boston, May 12, 1852.
