YOUR approbation of this edition of the Commentaries is highly flattering to me. It has stamped upon it a value which the humble opinion I must entertain of my own abilities would ever have precluded me from ascribing to it.
To you, Sir, I have been particularly indebted for advice upon my first entering into the profession. By this advice I have ever regulated my studies, and I acknowledge that to it I now owe that portion of legal knowledge which I possess. Part of the results of these studies I have now the honor of inscribing to you; and the permission thus to dedicate the work to a gentleman of such acknowledged erudition, of such unquestionable abilities, and of such merited eminence in the profession, is, in my estimation, the greatest favour that could have been conferred upon me.
Retaining a just sense of all these obligations,
I have the honor to remain, .
With every sentiment of sincere respect,
JOHN FREDERICK ARCHBOLD.
