TO THE RIGHT HONOURABLE

HENRY LORD VISCOUNT MELVILLE,

ONE OF HIS MAJESTY'S MOST HONOURABLE

PRIVY COUNCIL, &c. &c.

MY LORD,

DEDICATIONS from obscure individuals to exalted personages, are, in general, such pompous and fulsome eulogies, that I will not insult your Lordship’s good sense, nor betray my own total want of it, by addressing you in a similar style.

I am unacquainted with your Lordship, except through the medium of your public character; and I have taken the liberty of dedicating the following Skerciles to your Lordship, not from gratitade för påst, or the smallest hope of future favours, to myself individually, but because you have always been the LIBERAL FRIEND OF THE NAVY, and particularly of that department to which I have the honour of belonging.
