TO

THE RIGHT HONOURABLE

EARL GREY, K. G.

&c. &c. &c.

MY LORD! I TRUST that this modest little volume may appear at a moment favourable to your Lordship’s perusal. The spring of the political world appears almost as forward, and budding, as that of the natural. All is flourishing, and fresh, and fair ; full of promise, and pregnant with felicity.

Your Bill, which you described the other night as “ so interesting in its nature, ” phrase apparently borrowed from the puff of the last new novel, — is at length in sight of port.
