LIBRARY Mrs. William C. Lane

TO THE

RIGHT REV. NICHOLAS WISEMAN, D.D. ,

BISHOP OF MELIPOTAMUS,

AND VICAR APOSTOLIC OF THE LONDON DISTRICT,

&c. &c. &c.

MY DEAR LORD,

I present for your Lordship's kind acceptance and patronage the first work which I publish as a Father of the Oratory of St. Philip Neri. I have a sort of claim upon your permission to do so, as a token of my gratitude and affection toward your Lordship, since it is to you principally that I owe it, under God, that I am a client and subject, however unworthy, of so great a Saint.

When I found myself a Catholic, I also found myself in your Lordship's district; and, at your suggestion, I first moved into your immediate neighbourhood, and then, when your Lordship further desired it, I left you for Rome.
