ASTOR, LENCY ANT TILDEN Fí R

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 for 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.
