PREFIXED TO FIRST EDITION.
TO THE VERY REVEREND MONSIGNORE
CHARLES W. RUSSELL, D.D.,
PRESIDENT OF ST. PATRICK'S COLLEGE, MAYNOOTH.
MY DEAR DR. RUSSELL,
You have permitted me to dedicate to you this translation, which owes so much to you.
But for the great interest you took in it, your generous encouragement, your acute and scholarly criticism, I am sure I should have never ventured to publish it. Your kindness to me in this regard has been but the sequel of a lifetime of kindness. It is truly a great happiness and privilege to be enabled to subscribe myself
Your affectionate friend,
JOHN O'HAGAN. UPPER FITZWILLIAM STREET, DUBLIN,
When the above dedication was written and in print, I little thought that Dr. Russell would not live to see the publication of a work, with every page and alınost every line of which he is associated in my memory.
In love, sorrow,
and reverence I dedicate it to him anew.
