TO THE

HONORABLE HENRY CLAY:

MY DEAR SIR:

I take the liberty to inscribe these volumes to you as a testimonial of personal gratitude. In the midst of engrossing cares you have often been pleased to turn aside for a while to foster those who were following the humbler and quieter walks of litera ture; and it is, naturally, their delight to offer for your acceptance, upon every suitable occasion, an acknowledgment of cordial thankfulness.

Allow me, then, as the only tribute I can tender, to present a work designed to illustrate the history and resources of one of those American States which were summoned into the brotherhood of nations by your sympathy and eloquence.

I
am,
with the greatest respect,
Your friend and servant,

BRANTZ MAYER.
BALTIMORE, JULY, 1850.
