Benry F. Charleg, Esq.

MY DEAR FRIEND,

But for you this book would never have existed.

It has been

to me throughout a source of great gratification. As I wrote line after line of our fine old Poets, many a cherished scene and a happy hour seemed to live again in my memory and my heart. But no higher pleasure can it afford me, than the opportunity of expressing to you my sincere respect and admiration for talent, especially dramatic talent not even yet sufficiently known, and for innumerable personal qualities worth all the talent in the world.
