DEDICATION.

To those who have intimated a friendly desire to hear something more of Henry and his uncle Frederick, and to those also, who, without a previous acquaintance, have yet kindly expressed a wish to know them, they are now presented, with a hope that they may be the means of adding some little to the information and entertainment of their younger friends, and in nothing either offend or mislead any.

The Author takes this opportunity of saying there is not an anecdote related, or an adventure repeated, even the wildest of uncle Frederick, without good reason for believing it to be not only substantially, but circumstantially correct.

COVENTRY, Sept. 10th, 1845.
