DEDICATION

OF THE SIXTH VOLUME.

With the warmest -paternal affection, mingled with deeply afflicted feelings, I dedicate this, the last volume of my Works, to the memory of my deceased children: ' .

JULIA WEBSTER APPLETON, beloved in all the relations of Daughter, Wife, Mother, Sister, and Friend; and

MAJOR EDWARD WEBSTER,

who died in Mexico, in the military service of the United States, with unblemished honor and reputation, and who entered that service solely from a desire to be useful to his country and do honor to the State in which he was born.

“Go, gentle Spirits, to your destined rest :
While I, reversed our Nature's kindlier doom,
Pour forth a Father's sorrow on your tomb."

DANIEL WEBSTER
