SIR JAMES PAGET, BART., F.R.S., D.C.L., ETC., ETC. MY DEAR SIR JAMES ,— The little papers which are here reprinted would scarcely have been written but for the encouragement of your sympathy and the stimulus of what you have contributed to the loving study of nature. Shall you, then, think me presumptuous if I venture to dedicate to the friend what I could never dream of presenting to the professor, and if I ask you to pardon the poorness of the gift in consideration of the sincerity with which it is given. Pray believe me to be Yours very sincerely, ELIZA BRIGHTWEN THE GROVE, GREAT STANMORE.
