MY DEAR SIR:
I discharge an agreeable duty in dedicating this Volume to you, for, believe me, your commendations alone have drawn the Manuscript from seclusion.
May I trust that the hopes now fanned into flame may prove other than ashes, and that the work may receive the distinction which you have so flatteringly predicted for its future ? Very sincerely, yours,
PETER F. STOUT.
