TO THE RIGHT HONOURABLE

GEORGE CANNING,

&c. &c. &c.

SIR,

IT is with the warmest feelings of thankfulness and respect, that I presume to dedicate the following pages to you, who placed me in the situation which enabled me to visit the Countries I have attempted to describe, and from whom I have always experienced so much condescension and friendship; and, if I had no other excuse for venturing to commit my Journal to the press, I should confidently rest my apology on the opportunity it affords me of thus publicly acknowledging the obligations you have heaped upon me, and of expressing, as strongly as I can, that whilst I continue to enjoy life and memory, I must ever be proud of your protection, and grateful for

your

kindness.
I have the honour to be,

SIR,
Your most faithful and devoted Servant,

WILLIAM TURNER.
