SIRE,—The Author of this collection ot Works of l'iction would not have presumed to solicit for them Your Majesty's August Patronage, were it not that the perusal has been supposed, in some instances, to have succeeded in amnsing hours of relaxation, or relieving those of languor, pain, or anxiety; and therefore must have so far aided the warmest wish of your Majesty's heart, by contributing, in however small a degree, to the liappiness of your people. They are therefore humbly dedicated to your Majesty, agreeable to your gracious permission by
Your Majesty's Dutiful Subject, WALTER SCOTT. ABBOTSFORD, 1st January, 1829.
