TO

CHARLES LAMB, ESQ

DEAR

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 glooms 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 DEDICATE THIS VOLUME,

TO YOU AND MISS LAMB,

WITH AFFECTIONATE RESPECT,

W. HONE

May 5, 1926.
