TO THE LECTURE COMMITTEE
BRISTOL PHILOSOPHICAL INSTITUTE,

reel, DF 4-26-34
THE FOLLOWING IS RESPECTFULLY INSCRIBED.
This Lecture, though delivered, is not printed, by
But the writer having taken some little trou
ble in compiling it, ventures to publish the trifle,
chiefly because the means of committing it to the press
at little cost to himself are at his command. There
has been rather a long interval between its delivery
ard publication, owing to its having been put aside
from time to time for more urgent engagements. This
delay, however, has enabled him to increase the number
of his examples; and for some of those added since the
Lecture was originally spoken, he is indebted to the
kindness of M. H. V. de Candole, of this City, whose
opportunities and reading enabled him to supply those
not within reach of the writer.
It will be seen that in some few instances the
French of the phrases has been retained; but this is
only the case where the writer could not satisfy him
self that translation conveyed their full force.
