TO

THE RIGHT HONOURABLE

LORD BRAYBROOKE.

The kindness with which your lordship intrusted to me some very valuable materials for the coniposition of this volume has induced me to embrace the present opportunity of publicly acknowledging it. But even if this personal obligation had been less powerful, those literary attainments and that enlightened benevolence which reflect upon rank its highest lustre would have justified me in seeking for it the patronage of a name which they have so justly honoured.

DAVID BREWSTER.

Allerly, June 1st, 1831.
