MY DEAR SIR,

In using your name, on the present occasion, without permission, I am actuated by lively emotions of personal regard, and feel well assured that you will cheerfully unite with me in an endeavour to preserve the living remains of our mutual friend. In the performance of this duty, which has justly been regarded by an imperishable writer of antiquity as one of the most important of life, and the most pleasing of friendship, I enjoy the singular satisfaction of exhibiting, in the characters of my patron and my author, brilliant examples of an elegant mind combined with purity of principle and warmth of heart.

J. E. HALL.

December 21, 1816.
