Edward Wortley Mountague Esq;
HEN I send you this Volume,
Request than a Dedication. I must desire, that if you think fit to throw away any Moments on it, you would not do it after reading those excellent Pieces with which you are usually conversant. The Images which you will meet with here, will be very feint, after the Perusal of the Greeks and Romans, who are your Ordinary Companions. I must confess I am obliged to you for the Taft of many of their Excellencies, which I had not observed till you pointed them to me. I am very proud that there are some Things in these Papers which I know you pardon ; and it is no small Pleasure to have ones
Labours suffered by the Judgment of ą Man who so well understands the true Charms of Eloquence and Poesie. But i direct this Address to you; not that I think I can entertain you with my Writings, but to thank you for the new Delight I have from your Conversation in those of other Men.
May you enjoy a long Continuance of the true Relish of the Happiness Heaven hath bestowed upon you. I know not how to say a more affectionate Thing to you, than to wish that you may be always what you are; and char you may ever think, as I know you now do, that you have a much larger Fortune than you want. I am,
Your most Obedient, and
Mof Humble Servant,
