TO

CHARLES LAMB, ESQ

Dear L ,

Your letter to me, within the first two months from the commencement of the present work, approving my notice of St. Chad's Well, and your afterwards daring to publish me your *' friend," with your " proper name" annexed, I shall never forget. Nor can I forget your and Miss Lamb's sympathy and kindness when gloom3 outmastered me; and that your pen spontaneously sparkled in the book, when my mind was in clouds and darkness. These "trifles," as each of you would call them, are benefits scored upon my heart; and

I OEDICATE THIS VOLOMK,

TO YOU AND MISS LAMB,

WITH AFFECTIONATE RESPECT,

W. HONK
