PRINTED FOR C. J. G. & F. RIVINGTON,
ST. PAUL'S CHURCH-YARD,
LORD BISHOP OF LIMERICK.
I VENTURE to address this work to your Lordship, because I am anxious to record my gratitude for the kind interest which
you have taken in it, and to enjoy the privilege of thus publicly connecting my name with one which, wherever it is known, is revered and beloved. Let me trust that
your Lordship will pardon my boldness, in taking this liberty without your permission.
That your Lordship's life may
prolonged for very many years, in renovated health and strength, is a prayer which, in common with all who have the happiness of knowing you, I breathe from the bottom of
heart. Nor is that
Nor is that prayer uttered under the influence of private feelings alone, but in the certainty, that, whatever portion of years and of strength it may please the Almighty Disposer of events to bestow on you, all those years, and all that strength will be consecrated to promoting His cause on earth, and employed in rendering to His Church all the service which can be rendered by lofty and uncompromising principle, by piety and by learning
I have the honour to be,
With the utmost respect,
Your Lordship’s obliged servant,
HUGH JAMES ROSE.
