R. C. Jebb, M.P., M.D., LL.D.,

PROFESSOR OF GREEK IN THE UNIVERSITY OF CAMBRIDGE

MY DEAR JEBB,

This Edition of my Book, corrected and thus made, I hope, somewhat more worthy of your acceptance, I gladly dedicate to you, as a mark of gratitude for much kindness, a record of an old friendship, and an expression of my admiration for your own work.

νύν, ώ Καλλιόπης θύγατερ, πολυηγόρε Φρόντι,

δείξεις εί τι φρονείς και τι περισσον έχεις.
τω γάρ ες άλλο σχήμα μεθαρμοσθέντι και άλλοις

έν κόσμοισι βίον σώμα λαβόνθ' έτερον
δεί σ' αρετής κήρυκα τεκείν τινα Λυσία ύμνον,

δύντι κατά φθιμένων και στέφος αθάνατον,
ός το τ' εμής ψυχής δείξαι φιλέταιρον άπασι
και την του φθιμένου πάσι βροτοίς αρετήν.

PHILISCUS, in Vit. x. Or.

Est Atticus, quoniam certe Athenis est et natus et mortuus et functus omni civium munere.

CICERO, Brutus, 16.

Those incomparable speeches : incomparable, I mean, in their kind, which is not the highest kind. They are wonderful,Scarlett speaking in the style of Addison.

MAÇAULẠY.
