TO THOMAS CARLYLE, Esq.

DEAR MR. CARLYLE.

You were kind enough to encourage me to under. take the task of restoring the text of Mr. Boswell's great Biography: and, in addition, have allowed me to inscribe the work, now completed, io vou.

That my humble labour will be found worthy of such encouragement, I will not venture to affirm : but it has, at least, been

directed by a reverential feeling, and, above all, is conceived in

the spirit of that admirable view of Boswell's work and character

which you gave to the world many years ago.

PERCY FITZGERALD.
