DEDICATION

VOLUME FIRST.

GENTLEMEN OF THE BRITISH ARMY,

To the real and permanent good of the British Army; to its grace, its dignity, and its utility, through its manners, morals, and knowledge, this work is humbly dedicated ; being an anxious effort, upon the part of the Editor and his friends, to infuse into the younger officers a professional real and an ardent patriotism; and to remind them that the best and surest roots of all true heroism are that knowledge and virtue, which, by adding their worth, teach phen to value themselves ; and that active and manly piety, which, in teaching them the FEAR OF GOD, sets them above all other fear whatever.
