Excerpt from Chatsworth

My Lord Duke,

It is with true pleasure that, with your Grace's express permission, I dedicate to you this work, in which I have attempted to trace the history, and describe some of the features, of your princely home of Chatsworth.

Prepared under the peculiarly favourable circumstances, not only of having your Grace's fullest sanction, but also with the advantage of facilities granted by you for the purpose, I could not issue it without, on the very first page, expressing to you my warmest acknowledgments and thanks for this, and for many other acts of kindness I have at various times received at your hands.

To describe and illustrate Chatsworth worthily would take a far larger and more extended volume than the one I have prepared; but it is a great satisfaction to me to know that it is the first and only work which has been specially devoted to it, and that it has the proud distinction of receiving your Grace's approval.

In expressing to you my own thanks I but very faintly echo those of thousands, not only of our own countrymen, but of our brethren on the Continent and across the broad Atlantic, for the kindly and truly generous manner in which you permit others to enjoy the beauties of your "Palace of the Peak."

Long may your Grace be spared to enjoy the blessings which, with so liberal a hand, you dispense to others; and long may thousands of grateful hearts convey to you their unbounded thanks for all you have so nobly done for them.
