ABERDEEN, September 17, 1788.

LORD BISHOP OF CARLISLE.

MY LORD,

THE trouble you were last year so good as to take, in perusing a considerable part of this Work in manuscript, and the favourable sentiments you were pleased to express of what you had got time to peruse, have emboldened me to dedicate it to your Lordship. I mean not thus to bespeak your future patronage, or even approbation of the whole, when you shall become acquainted with it. That can be only as your better judgment shall direct. I well know, that if the book have no merit of its own, no patron whatever can long preserve it, or ought to preserve it if he could, from its natural fate, oblivion. But I am happy in this opportunity of expressing to the world my gratitude for the patronage you have already bestowed both on it and on its author. I am happy also to have it in my power to inscribe a work intended for promoting the best interests of mankind, the cause of truth and probity, to one who, to the satisfaction of the candid and judicious, has approved himself an able defender of the most important truths, as well as a successful detecter of fraud and falsehood.

I have the honour to be, with great respect,

MY LORD,

Your Lordship's most obliged,

and most obedient servant,

GEORGE CAMPBELL.
