MY DEAR SIR,
In dedicating this Journal to you, I have the melancholy satisfaction of fulfilling the intention of its Author. Had he lived to revise and complete the Work himself, he would more ably have expressed to you his sense of the obligations which he felt for his nomination to the Bishopric of Calcutta, for the invariable kindness he received at your hands during his residence in India, and for the zeal with which you met and forwarded his views for the welfare of its inhabitants.
The friendship that you have ever entertained for my husband was met on his part by feelings of no common nature; and the affection which you bear his memory, makes me sensible that you will highly appreciate this testimony of his gratitude and regard.
I have the honour to be, my dear Sir,
Your much obliged and obedient,
December 31, 1827.
