TOJAMES HEDDERWICK, ESQ.,
Editor of the "Glasgow Citizen."
The thread of the gossamer,
"a trifle light as air," shows the way of the wind; the evanescent
foam-bell upon the surface of the stream indicates the tendency of the
current; and the dedication of my little book may serve to manifest the
drift of my feelings towards one whom I regard as a friend and benefactor.
Permit me therefore to inscribe it to you, with every sentiment of respect
