SIR,

The gracious permission to dedicate this edition to Your Royal Highness not only confers on me the greatest honour that can be granted to a British Sportsman; but also gives me the heartfelt pleasure, before I leave the field, of inscribing my humble production on Guns and Shooting to a distinguished patron of the one, and a noble example for the manly exercise of the other.

I have the honour to be,

Sir,
Your Royal Highness's ever dutiful
and obedient Servant,

PETER HAWKER.
