" Nor is the Mead unworthy of thy Foot,
“ Full of fresh Verdure, and unnumber'd Flowers,
“ The negligence of Nature, wide, and wild;
“ Where, undisguis’d by mimic Art, she spreads
“ Unbounded Beauty to the roving Eye.”

TO

HER GRACE

THE

DUCHESS OF DEVONSHIRE.

MADAM,

A STRANGER to England, but not so to the refined taste for polite literature, and unbounded patronage of the fine arts, so eminently conspicuous in your Grace : permit me, Madam, to offer to your favourable notice the following hasty sketches, originating from objects but imperfectly known to this country; and by the present crisis, rendered particularly interesting The intention with which they are published will, I trust, in some degree, extenuate their faults;

and

and if they should be so fortunate as to obtain your Grace's approbation and protection, I shall enjoy a satisfaction equally pleasurable, as it will be honourable.

Madam, impressed with the most profound respect, I remain, your Grace's

Most devoted,

Obedient humble Servant,

GEORGE HOLMES.
