TO

GEORGE, EARL OF EGREMONT,

F. R. S.

MY LORD,

I feel particular pleasure in dedicating this Volume to you ; it having invariably been the object of your life to protect the Bark that laboured amidst the Waves of this turbulent World : but for you, my Lord, mine would now drive at random before the Wind ; since the revered Pilot, who so long conducted it, is in the Grave. With a due sense of the many

have honoured me with, and of the regard you had for that excellent Officer,

Favours you
