THE tried, steady, zealous, and conscientious advocate of the liberty of his country, and the rights of mankind;——

One of those few persons who are what they would he thought to be; sincere without offence, firm but temperate; uniting private worth to public principle, a friend in need, a patriot without an eye to himself; who never betrayed an individual or a cause he pretended to serve—in short, that rare character, a man of common sense and common honesty.

This volume is respectfully and gratefully inscribed by

The Author.
