HONOURABLE SIR AND SIRS:
By your kind permission I have the honour to present the following Work, in the anxious hope that it may meet with your approbation.
The patronage and facilities which I have received, from your Honourable Court, will ever be held in my grateful recollection, and I beg to return my sincere acknowledgments, for the very liberal support which has been afforded me.
