FRANCIS, EARL OF MOIRA,
General in His Majesty's Forces, Master-General of the
Ordnance, Constable of the Tower, &c. &c.
IT is impossible to think of addressing a De. dication to your Lordship without calling to mind the well-known reply of the Spartan to a rhetorician, who proposed to pronounce an eulogium on Hercules. “On “ Hercules !” said the honest . Spartan; “who ever
thought of blaming Hercules ?” In a similar manner the concurrence of public opinion has left to the panegyrist of your Lordship a very superfiuous task. I shall therefore be silent on the subject, and merely entreat your indulgence to the very humble tribute of gratitude which I have here the honour to present.
With every feeling of attachment and respect,
Your Lordship's very devoted Servant,
27, Bury Street, St. James's,
April 10, 1806.
