TO

THE REV. WILLIAM H. TURNER, B. D.

MY DEAR SIR;

ENCOURAGED by your obliging approbation of some remarks which I made upon our art, during a period in which I passed so many happy days in your society at Stockland, I commenced the following Series of Letters. Being fully aware of your

fine taste, not only as it regards painting, but also the sister arts of poetry and music in which you are known to excel, I feel proud in having your permission to inscribe the Letters to you, for whom I have so much esteem and re

spect.

I am, my dear Sir,

Very sincerely yours,

GEORGE BARRET.
