Protec by Kuchard Taylor and Co., Shoe-Lane, London.

TO

ELIZABETH,

LATE DUCHESS AND COUNTESS

OF NORTHUMBERLAND,

IN HER OWN RIGHT

BARONESS PERCY,

ETC, ETC. ETC.

WHO, BEING SOLE HEIRESS
TO MANY GREAT FAMILIES

OF OUR ANCIENT NOBILITY,
EMPLOYED THE PRINCELY FORTUNE,
AND SUSTAINED THE ILLUSTRIOUS HONOURS,

WHICH SHE DERIVED FROM THEM,

THROUGH HER WHOLE LIFE

WITH THE GREATEST DIGNITY,

GENEROSITY, AND SPIRIT ;
AND WHO FOR HER MANY PUBLIC

AND PRIVATE VIRTUES

WILL EVER BE REMEMBERED

AS ONE OF THE FIRST CHARACTERS

OF HER TIME,

THIS LITTLE WORK

WAS ORIGINALLY DEDICATED:

AND, AS IT SOMETIMES AFFORDED HER AMUSEMENT, AND WAS HIGHLY DISTINGUISHED

BY HER INDULGENT APPROBATION,

IT IS NOW,
WITH THE UTMOST REGARD,
RESPECT, AND GRATITUDE,

CONSECRATED

TO HER BELOVED AND HONOURED

MEMORY.
