TO

MISS MARIA EDGEWORTH.

MADAM, To whom can a work, which professes to blend amusement with instruction, be dedicated with so much propriety, as to one, whose numerous writings have satisfactorily demonstrated the practicability and value of such a union; to one, who has stripped Romance of her meretricious trappings, and converted her theatre into a temple worthy of Minerva ? Justly has it been observed, that to the magic pens of Madame D'Arblay, and yourself, we are indebted for having the Novel restored to its consequence, and, therefore, to its usefulness; and I may be allowed to add, that your Harry and Lucy has shown how profitably, and agreeably, the machinery of fiction may be worked for the dissemination of truth.

That a life which has been so honourable to yourself, and so serviceable to the commonwealth, may be long extended, and deservedly enjoyed, is the fervent wish of

THE AUTHOR.

London,
