SOCIAL, LITERARY, POLITICAL.

BY

HENRY LYTTON BULWER, ESQ. M.P.

Nature and truth are the same every where, and reason shows them every where alike.
But the accidents and other causes, which give rise and growth to opinions both in specu-
lation and practice, are of infivite variety.Bolingbroke on the true Use of Retirement
and Study.

Revere conditores Deos, dumina Deorum. Reverere gloriam veterem, et hanc ipsamn
senectutem quæ in homine venerabilis, in urbibus sacra est. Sit apud te honor antiquitati,
sit ingentibus facti, sit fabulis quoque, nihil ex cujusquam dignitate, nihil ex libertate,
nihil etiam ex jactatione decerpseris.- Plinius Maximo Suo S.

TO

B. G. KING, ESQ.

MY DEAR KING,

We have so few opportunities afforded us of testifying esteem, that I feel inexpressible gratification in thus being able to present you with this very unworthy token of the sentiments with which a long acquaintance has inspired me. Nor is this all :—the present dedication is not only an ordinary tribute paid to friendship-it is a tribute paid to a friend whom I esteem as much for his public principle as his private worth. And, indeed, it is no small consolation, in thus entering upon a new career, to feel that whatever may be my fate as an author—there must still remain to me the pleasure and the honour with which I shall ever look back to the temporary connexion of my name with yours.—This is not said, my dear King, in the formal and customary spirit of dedicatory addresses, but with the deepest and sincerest sentiments of regard and affection.

Yours most truly,

HENRY LYTTON BULWER.

Hill Street, September 3, 1834.
