TO THE

MOST REVEREND R. C. TRENCH, D.D.

LORD ARCHBISHOP OF DUBLIN.

MY DEAR LORD ARCHBISHOP,

When I asked leave to dedicate to you this Edition of Cowper's Poems,

I wished to express, in the only way that lies in my power, my gratitude for past

kindnesses, and for all that I have learned from you.

But, independently of thesc

feelings, I know that all readers of this volume will recognize a fitness in the offering for your acceptance the Works of one whose writings were so natural

and pure and good, and whose command of his mother-tongue was so complete.
