MY DEAR SIR,

It is to your friendship that I owe the idea and the possibility of publishing this little work in a language not my cwn. With rare kindness, and a disinterestedness still more rare, you save placed at my disposal your hours of leisure and your skilful and indefatigable pen. The book is yours already, and I but renew your title to it by begging you to accept this DEDICATION, as a testimony of my heart-felt gratitude, and at the same time as a scuvenir of the loug but pleasant hours of labor which you have so kindly sha ed

with me to the last.

THE AUTHOR
