To the Right Honourable Henry Wriothesly, Earl of
Southampton, and Baron of Tichfield.
THE love I dedicate to your lordship is without end; whereof this
pamphlet, without beginning, is but a superfluous moiety. The warrant
I have of your honourable disposition, not the worth of my untutored
lines, makes it assured of acceptance. What I have done is yours; what
I have to do is yours; being part in all I have, devoted yours. Were
my worth greater, my duty would show greater; meantime, as it is, it
is bound to your lordship, to whom I wish long life, still lengthened
with all happiness.
Your lordship's in all duty,
