TO THE

MOST REVEREND R. C. TRENCH, D D.

LORD ARCHBISHOP OF DUBLIN.

Mv Dear Lord Archbishop,

When I asked leave to dedicate to you this Edition of Cowper's Poems, I wished to express, in the only way that lies in my power, my gratitude for past kindnesses, andfor all that I have learned from yon. Put, independently of these feelings, I knmv that all readers of this volume will recognize a fitness in the offering for your acceptance the Works of one whose writings were so natural and pure ami good, and whose command of his mother-tongue was so complete. With deep feelings of affection and sympathy,

I remain,
Mv Dear Lord Archbishop,

Your Grace's faithful Servant,

W. BENHAM.

Addington Vicarage,
Julv 9, 1870.
