TO THE RIGHT HONOURABLE
SIR RICHARD PEPPER ARDEN,
MASTER OF THE ROLLS, AND ONE OF HIS MAJESTY'S MOST HONOURABLE
PERFECTLY sensible of that regard which you entertain for the virtuous character, I experience no difficulty in committing to your patronage a new edition of the following pages.—They contain portraits of genuine excellence, finished by no unskilful artist. Charmed from my earliest years with their captivating beauties, I shall probably be deemed a partial and prejudiced spectator. Be this as it maywhen I request your permission to inscribe to you a volume which exhibits a full and adequate representation of persons eminent for their great and amiable qualities, I am confident of your kind indulgence.
and devoted servant,
WYCLIFFE, JAN. 16, 1796.
