REV. H. J. TODD, M. A., F.S. A. & M.R.S. L.
CHAPLAIN TO HIS MAJESTY,
And Rector of Settrington, County of York.
Though a humble gleaner in the field of Philology, in which you have exerted yourself with so much energy and success, I feel anxious to dedicate the Craven Dialect to you, who having been long engaged in similar pursuits, are so fully competent to appreciate its merits, if it possesses any, and, I trust, candid enough to criticise with forbearance its numerous defects.
Gratified by your approval of the first, I have only to hope that I may not lose your good opinion in the second edition of this work.
Your respectful and obliged Servant,
March 31, 1828.
