Thus to draw the links of society closer to each other, and awaken the most endearing ties and active virtues of which human nature is capable, is a task so congenial to your character, habits, and situation, that policy would authorize me in seeking your patronage, if the sincere friendship and long-cherished esteem with which I regard you, had not induced me to offer it to your acceptance.This little work is so humble in its pretensions, that I should consider it due to you to offer an apology for it, if I had not enjoyed the honour of having it approved by the first female autho[1] of the present day, whose numerous works for the benefit of youth are, I well know, so justly appreciated by you, as to render such a sanction a full passport to your favour, even if you were less inclined to indulge me than I have ever found you.[1] Miss Edgeworth.With every sentiment of sincere respect,I am, Dear Madam,Your affectionate friend,And faithful servant,THE AUTHOR.
