If a life of deep experience has enabled me in THE PILGRIMS OF THE THAMES, IN SEARCH or THE NATIONAL, to depict scenes, which, at the time they amuse, may instruct the Public; I may perhaps be pardoned, for most humbly and respectfully, thus inscribing my efforts to your Majesty ; who has ever the welfare of your people at heart.

That LITERATURE, THE FINE ARTS, SCIENCES, &c., may bloom healthily, and brightly, under your Majesty's protection, --who, while you foster the more elevated Rose, will not neglect the humble Violet;—that your Majesty may long, very long, reign over a brave and free people, the Mistress of their Hearts, as you are of a Kingdom, which is MISTRESS OF THE WORLD; and that in promoting the Peoples' you may secure your own happiness, is the sincere wish of,

YOUR MAJESTY'S
Very humble, and
Most devoted Servant,

PIERCE EGAN. London, January 1st. 1838.
