HISTORIAN OF THE FRENCH REVOLUTION AND BIOGRAPHER
In that walk we had last summer, when you were kind enough to be my companion, I was so struck by your gentle liberality of mind and knowledge of Irish topics, based on a personal acquaintance with its soil and sons, that I venture to hope this little book, notwithstanding its shortcomings, may not prove wholly distasteful to you. More I shall not say here; for, knowing how sensitively you recoil from praise, I refrain from dilating on the impression which your writings have produced on the world. Allow me, however, to express my appreciation of your kindness in permitting me to inscribe your name on this page; and believe me to be yours faithfully and obliged,
W. J. FITZ-PATRICK.
