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 you.
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.
