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 habits of intimacy; I am aware that I subject myself 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 deserve 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.
