WILLIAM HOLDEN, PRINTER, ABBEY-STREET, DUBLIN.

I RESPECTFULLY dedicate to the Reverend Doctor

FRANC SADLEIR, Provost of Trinity College, Dublin, this attempt

(the first, I believe, of foster-son of that College), to elucidate the

great Latin Epic.

JAMES HENRY.

FITZWILLIAM-SQUARE, DUBLIN;

SEPTEMBER, 1845.

I beg to return my grateful acknowledgments to my kind friends, GEORGE DOWNEs, Esq., Ballitore, THOMAS NOBLE COLE, Esq., East Park-street, Dublin, and to my brother, THOMAS ELDER Henry, Esq., Glenageary Cottage, Kingstown, for numerous suggestions and corrections, contributing much to the accuracy and completeness of this translation.

An explanation of some peculiarities in the style will be found in note (7), page 83 ; and note (), page 101.

I have thought it unnecessary to complicate and disfigure the printing with marks, indicative of the many elisions and unusual ictus, required by the rhythm, believing that the absence of such aids will not be felt by readers otherwise capable of understanding the work.

J. H.
