SONG II. 11, 12,
SOLD BY OGLE AND AIKMAN, EDINBURGH ;
IN GREAT BRITAIN.
YOUR exemplary character for benevolence, with every other Christian virtue, so long the ornament of your worthy Ancestors, together with the honour of the Douglas Family, being $0 well known, anticipates any thing that might come from my pen on these subjects. All I have to observe is, that I think myself highly honoured in being allowed to dedicate the following sheets to your Ladyship ; which, next to Divine Providence, I commit to your patronage.

Your Ladyship’s much obliged,
Most obedient, and very humble Servant,
