DANIEL LORD, ESQ.

DEAR SIR :

If you find no fault, I am very sure that I shall not be elsewhere censured for placing your name (although without any previous permission), upon the dedication page of this work.

Your opinion of the importance of the subject, is one of the circumstances that have most strongly urged me to proceed with it. But I have other reasons for requesting you to accept this volume.

You show us all, by a teaching far better than barren precept, how much true dignity and usefulness, as well, if we may be allowed to judge, as real happiness, attend a life assiduously, intelligently, and, above all, honorably devoted to that profession of which we are the votaries.

I am, dear Sir,
With sincere regard and respect,
Your obedient servant,

THEODORE SEDGWICK.

New YORK, January, 1847.
