The flowery Path of Poetry but ill accords with the thorny Mazes of the Law ; in the one I have wandered with rapture from Infancy, and I have endeavoured to grace the other with a simple but lasting Ornament-Integrity of Heart.

Sir,

Your obliged humble Servant,

CHARLES SNART.

Newark, January 1, 1807.
