RIGHT HON. VISCOUNT GODERICH, M.P.
The many services you have generously rendered the Working Classes, so as to enable them, by their own intelligence and united industry, to produce for mutual interest, and to rise morally and socially to a more elevated position, are the true evidences of how much your Lordship deserves both their gratitude and that of the community at large.
And as the simple but heartfelt expression of the deep conviction felt in the usefulness of your Lordship's public career, the humble efforts contained in the present volume are respectfully dedicated by
Your Lordship's most obedient servant,
J. H. POWELL.
