ΤΟ

EDWARD KENEALY, Esq.,

BARRISTER-AT-LAW, GRAY'S INN, LONDON.

MY DEAR SIR:

Το you, whose companionship was the solace of his closing years; whose tenderness smoothed his pillow in the last sad hours of fleeting life; whose friendship finally devoted itself to record his career as a man of letters, this collection of the Miscellaneous Writings of the late Dr. MAGINN owes much more than can be silently passed over. Without your kind assistance, I should have been unable, in several instances, to affiliate many of the articles, so pertinaciously did our brilliant countryman maintain the anonymous, and so Protean were his changes of style and subject. Nor could I have written the Life of Dr. MAGINN, which occupies a large space in this volume, without considerable indebtedness to the satisfactory biography contributed by you, in 1844, to the Dublin University Magazine.

In acknowledgment, then, of personal favors to myself, and also on account of the zealous regard you have so steadily and warmly manifested, in private and public, for the genius and the

reputation of WILLIAM MAGINN, I take leave to dedicate these volumes of his Writings to you.
