WHEN a youth, just entering into life, experiences the disinterested kindness of an amiable and respectable friend, how can his heart but glow with gratitude. Such an youth am I, Sir ; and the urbanity of your conduct toward me, joined to the solicitude by you expressed for my welfare, has caused impressions never to be eradicated : As a small expression of my feeling, permit me, Sir, thus publickly to dedicate to you my thanks, together with this little volume, which, however it may fail in intrinsick merit, is certainly not wanting in good intention.
With filial reverence,
