MY DEAR LORD, I KNOW not to whom this Life of Bishop Ken could with more propriety be dedicated than to Him, who learned the same lessons, at the same distinguished school, where Bishop Ken was educated,- to Him, who was Fellow of the same College in Oxford — elected Fellow of the same College of Winchester — from thence advanced to the Episcopal Bench, like Bishop Ken and Bishop Lowth — and who from thence has been advanced to the highest station in the Episcopal Church of Christ, like Chicheley and Warham, educated in the same illustrious Seminary. But, independently of these circumstances, I am persuaded this offering will not be unacceptable, as coming from one
Grace's oldest friends and schoolfellows, equally attached with yourself to that school where our studies began, and the Communion of that Church over which you so auspiciously preside.
Without presuming to think your Grace will agree with me in all the opinions, political or religious, expressed in this work, I am sure, at least, of your
candid construction of them. I have only to pray that your valuable life may be long continued, to exhibit that exemplary piety and virtue, those qualities of heart and understanding, which distinguished the character I have endeavoured to describe; and I remain, as from our early days, till called away for ever,
Most sincere and affectionate Friend,
W. L. BOWLES.
