TO

WALTER BENSON, Esquire

I DEDICATE MY MODEST PART IN THIS BOOK
IN TOKEN OF A FRIENDSHIP WHICH
HAS GROWN STAUNCHER WITH
THE GROWTH OF
YEARS

 

ἦ μεγάλα χάρις
Δώρῳ ξὺν ὀλίγῳ· πάντα δὲ τιμᾶντα τὰ πὰρ φίλων.

Theocritus, Idyl xxviii., 24, 25.

"Surely great grace goes with a little gift, and all the offerings of friends are precious."
