TO

THE RIGHT HON. SIR FREDERICK POLLOCK,

LORD CHIEF BARON, &c. &c. &c.

MY DEAR FRIEND,

I beg your acceptance of this tribute of respect to your public eminence and affection for your private virtues. The first I can only offer in common with the universal voice of your country; but the last I hope you will allow me to boast as a privilege and cherish as a happiness peculiarly my own. The knowledge of each other for more than half a century may have made me somewhat garrulous in speaking of our early times; but age has not altered nor abated the feelings of cordial esteem and regard which began in youth, were increased in middle life, and now warm my breast with grateful and kindliest emotions towards you and all who look up to and love you. If the most sincere attachment can justify a dedication, you are too upright a judge to reject the plea of

My dear Friend,

Your's most faithfully,

W. JERDAN.

April 16th, 1852.
