GEORGE PHILIPS, ESQ.
You must forgive me, my dear friend, for having gratified, without your participation, a wish which I have long entertained, to dedicate this volume to you. This, indeed, is the only part of the work on which your judgment has not been consulted. Within the circle of our acquaintance, no account of the motives for this dedication will be demanded : to the public let me say, that it is a tribute due, on my part, to a long-tried and perfect friendship, cemented by the love of letters, and destined, I trust, never to admit interruption or decay.
