HIS EXCELLENCY

SIR EDMUND HEAD, BART.,

LIEUTENANT-GOVERNOR OF THE PROVINCE OF NEW BRUNSWICK,

&c. &c.

DEAR SIR EDMUND,

I dedicate these volumes to you, partly because they contain, among other matters, the observations I made during a lengthened Tour through the province of which you are the Governor, and in the prosperity of which you feel so lively an interest. But I do so chiefly as a mode of testifying the respect and regard I entertain for yourself and your family, and as affording me an opportunity of expressing my sense of the many acts of kindness I experienced during a prolonged stay at Fredericton, under your hospitable roof.

Believe me, Dear Sir EDMUND, with great respect,
