Dedication

TO

FELIX VAUGHAN, ESQ

 

SIR,

PERMIT me to inscribe these TRIFLES to you.

They would possess as much merit as they ought, were

they worthy of your notice. Imperfect as they are,

you will not disdain to accept them, as a tribute of

grateful esteem from ONE, who is unfashionable

enough to write a Dedication without flattery, tho’

not so unfashionable as to conclude without a compli-

ment to himself, in telling the world that he is, with

sincere respect,

 

Your obliged friend and servant,

 

J–––– M–––––––––.
