RICHARD BRINSLEY SHERIDAN, ESQ.
Sir, When I desired permission to dedicate these Remarks to you, I was not sufficiently aware how dangerous an honour I was seeking :—the Work is merely critical, with little room for genius, were I possessed of any, to display itself; and I am evoking the discernment of one who, placed by the grateful and according suffrage of this nation in the
supreme chair of Wit, Taste, and Eloquence, is peculiarly endowed with a talent for detecting and exposing fallacy of every kind. This thought, indeed, would instantly have checked my presumption, if I did not, at the same time, reflect, that pre-eminent abilities are, naturally, associated with exemplary candour; and that he whom I address is not more distinguished for brilliancy of intellect, than for ardour of benevolence. I am, Sir, with great respect, Your obliged and faithful Humble servant,
E. H. SEYMOUR.
