Rev. WILLIAM HOWLEY, A.M.

[ocr errors]

FELLOW OF ST. MARY'S COLLEGE, WINTON.

DEAR SIR,

While I gratify my own feelings, by thus publicly dedicating to you the following version of The Georgics, and add, that it has stood the test of your criticism, I am not without fear, that to those who are acquainted with your taste and attainments in literature, I may seem to have consulted rather my own reputation, than the sentiments of disinterested friendship. You, however, cannot be mistaken in the genuine motives of this address; and, on that account, it is unnecessary for me to repeat the assurance of my regard and affection.

WILLIAM SOTHEBY.

LONDON,
Seymour Place,
May 15, 1800.
