The History of Henry Esmond


TO THE RIGHT HONORABLE
WILLIAM BINGHAM, LORD ASHBURTON.
MY DEAR LORD,
The writer of a book which copies the manners and language of Queen
Anne's time, must not omit the Dedication to the Patron; and I ask leave
to inscribe this volume to your Lordship, for the sake of the great kind-
ness and friendship which I owe to you and yours.
My volume will reach you when the Author is on his voyage to a
country where your name is as well known as here. Wherever I am, I
shall gratefully regard you; and shall not be the less welcomed in Amer-
ica because I am,
Your obliged friend and servant,
W. M. THACKERAY.
LONDON, October 18, 1852.
