GOVERNOR AND COMMANDER IN CHIEF OF

HIS MAJESTY'S POSSESSIONS AND FORCES IN

North America.

May it please your Excellency, PROMPTED by no interested motive, or questionable adulation, permit me, my Lord, to intreat your acceptance of the following pages, as a trifling testimony of gratitude, which every man, acquainted with the Government over which you preside, will cheerfully corroborate. Your inflexible and sound policy as a RULER, and your unbounded benevolence and commisseration in private life, are equally conspicuous.

My Lord,

Your Excellency's,

Obedient, devoted, humble Servant, Quebec, 1821,
