PRINTED FOR THE AUTHOR,
BY JOHN MOIR, ROYAL BANK CLOSE;
'ILLIAM SMITH, STATIONERS COURT; AND OGLE, GREAT TURN-STYLE,
IN GREAT BRITAIN.

All I have to observe is, that I think myself highly honoured in being allowed to dedicate the following sheets to your Ladyship; which, next to Divine Providence, I commit to your patronage.

yours, is the
Most obedient, and very humble Servant,
