OBLIGED AND AFFECTIONATE SERVANT,
G. G. ZERFFI.
During my residence in England I have received from you so much kindness and encouragement that I only perform an agreeable duty in dedicating this work to you.
My object in this edition of Goethe's Masterpiece has been to promote a greater appreciation of the Language and immortal Classics of Germany. Such an aim, I am sure, you will approve, well disposed as you always are to take the will for the deed. The will has certainly been good, but the deed will require, I know, the indulgence of so kind and lenient a critic as you have always proved to
Yours most obediently,
G. G. ZERFFI.
