In placing at the head of these sheets a name,
to which the respect and the admiration of the
Public have attached so much celebrity; and in
avowing, at the same time, that I have selected
the name of a Friend, with whom I have been
united almost from childhood, in the closest ha-
bits of intimacy; I am aware that I subject my-
self to the imputation of acting as much from a
motive of pride, as from a sentiment of affection.
I admit the imputation to be well-founded. To
enjoy the happiness of such a Friend, and not
to exult in the possession, would be not to de-
serve it. It is a pride which, I trust, may be
indulged in without blame: and the distinction
of having been associated with a character, so
transcendently eminent for private worth, for
public virtue, and for intellectual endowments, I
shall always regard as one of the most honourable
circumstances of my life.
