MY DEAR MR. DAWES,
In availing myself of your permission to dedicate to you an Edition of these Outlines, enriched by accounts of several of your own recent discoveries, I should ill acquit myself to my own feelings if I did not add to the expression of that grateful sense of your many and important services to our common Science, which every astronomer must acknowledge, that of affectionate esteem and regard, the natural result of a prolonged and most friendly intercourse.
O, 12-10-30 mɛw
