To RICHARD BRINSLEY SHERIDAN, Esq. M.P.
HIGHLY admiring that transcendant genius and ability which renders you conspicuous among the foremost characters of the age ; nor less venerating that manly indcpendence which has dignified your political career, even under circumstances the most trying; it must be my regret, in dedicating this Work to you, that it is not more suitahle to the rank of merit to which it is inscribed.
