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, to vou.
That my humble labour will be found worthy of such encourageI will not venture to affirm: but it has, at least, been ment, 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.
