ΤΟ

WILLIAM WORDSWORTH, ESQUIRE,

POET LAUREAT.

MY DEAR MR. WORDSWORTH,

I Am desirous that, if the present book finds its way to the next generation, it should make known to them that I had the great privilege of your friendship. And there is no one to whom I could with more propriety dedicate such a work: since in your Poems, at the season of life when the mind and the heart are most wrought on by poetry, I, along with many others, found a spirit of pure and comprehensive morality, operating to raise your readers above the moral temper of those times. I shall rejoice if it appear from the following pages, that such influences have not been wasted upon me.

That you may long enjoy the reverence and affection with which England, on such grounds, regards you, is the wish and prayer of

MY DEAR MR. WORDSWORTH,

Your cordial friend and admirer,

W. WHEWELL.

Trinity College, Cambridge,

April 14, 1845.
