In dedicating to your Ladyship the following Extracts, I indulge the impulse of affection and gratitude—and I entreat your patronage for a translation which I should never have ventured to attempt, but through your advice and encouragement. It was, I know, beyond my abilities to do justice to the peculiar elegance and energy of the original; but as the page of Fenelon offers to the afflicted so much valuable instruction and true consolation, I could not but endeavour to fulfil your Ladyship’s pious wish of making it more generally useful by

DEDICATION. an English translation.-Under your protection, I now presume to offer it to the Public, from whom I hope for indulgence, trusting that it will not severely criticise the performance of a young woman, whose sole aim is to be useful."

[graphic]

Allow me, Madam, to take this opportunity of acknowledging the many obligations which my family and myself have received at your hands; and accept the assurance of the true respect and affection with which I have the honour to be,

Your Ladyship's most grateful bassy slam Humble Servant, odvoort IR LOUISA A. MARSHALL.
