CORNET IN SIR JOHN COPE'S REGIMENT OR DRAGOONS

DEAR SIR, While my heart is following you with a truJy paternal solicitude, through all the dangers of military life, in which you are chus early engaged, anxious for your safety amidit the instruments of death, and the far more dangerous ale lurements of vice, I feel a peculiar pleasure in being able at length, though after such long delays, to put into your hands the memoirs with which I now present you. They contain many particulars, which would have been worthy of your attentive notice, had they related to a per. son of the moft diftant nation or age : But they will, I doubt not, command your peculiar regard, as they are sacred to the memory of that excellent man, from whom you had the honour to derive your birth, and by whose generous and affe&tionate care you have been laid under all the obligations which the best of fathers could confer on a most beloved son.
