TO JOSEPH MUSGRAVE, Esq. OF KYPIER, IN THE BISHOPRIC OF DURHAM.
Be pleased to accept this tribute of grateful respect for the friendship you have honored me with, a friendship begun in our early days, when we first imbibed the rudiments of our education at the same seminary of learning in the county of Kent, whilst we were under our respective paternal roofs in the same neighbourhood. Your property in the county, your encouragement of learning, and of this History in particular in the earliest publication of it, joined with your well-known liberality of sentiment, will, I am certain, induce you to continue your patronage to this Edition, and the Author of it, which will add to those savors you have already conferred on him, who is, with much respect,
Your most faithful
and obliged humble Servant,
Dec. 10, 1798.
