Dedication "TO WILLIAM SALTE, ESQ. Dear Sir, In sending you this hasty sketch of our short but agreeable excursion, I merely fulfil my engagement. Should your friends derive any amusement from the perusal, to you only their thanks are due, for without your injunction I should not have committed my remarks to writing. Whatever is erroneous, or frivolous, must be wholly attributed to me: but among my foibles include not the vanity of my supposing, that the following pages can aspire to the rank of a regular composition. My chief purpose in the publication is attained, in thus expressing the value that I set on your friendship, and the respect which I feel for your character. Believe me, dear sir, Most sincerely yours, Poultry, 4th April, 1805. J. Mawman."
