DEDICATORY LETTER

TO

Wm. B. MAC CABE, Esq.

AUTHOR OF “A CATHOLIC HISTORY OF ENGLAND," ETC.

MY DEAR MAC CABE,

It is customary for authors to parade at the commencement of their works, their intimacy with great men or influential people, and to make the eminence or notoriety of such persons, the auspices of their success. The object of this work, its affinity with your pursuits, the spirit in which the undertaking of it was imposed on me, are of a nature that induce me to think the dedication should be in keeping with them, that it should be inscribed to a good man, truthful, upright, and steadfast in faith, and therefore to one of the best men I have the happiness to know : even to yourself, my dear friend and school-fellow, I dedicate this volume.

R. R. MADDEN.
