To the Right Honourable Lord KENYON,

BARON KENYON, of Gredington, in the County of Flint, Lord Chief Justice of his MAJESTY's Court of King's

Bench, &c. &c. AT a time when abilities and talents are most shamefully prostituted to the execrable purposes of decrying subordination to civil power, and enervating the arm of lawful government, my grateful boat is the permission to dedicate to your Lordship these humble efforts to explain the nature and reasons of our constitution and government to the ignorant, and to enforce their energy and obligations against the malevolent.Your exemplary lessons upon the perfections of our constitution and government have taught the nation to admire

your

abi. lity, and exult in your disposition to preserve them in full purity and vigor. And I feel the satisfactory conviction of bearing a truly patriotic attachment to our constitution, whilst I am permitted to have the honour of subscribing myself, with respect and esteem,

MY LORD,

Your LORDSHIP's

DEVOTED HUMBLE SERVANT,

FRANCIS PLOWDEN,
