I feel assured that the accompanying volume must be interesting to you: – If there be ought presuming in my offering it, I must plead pure gratitude; as my motive, which will I trust ensure your pardon. The discovery of the rare „Hamlet“ took place just as I had finished reading your most delightful Lectures on Dramatic Literature  when I found it was to be re-printed, I immediately felt a desire that you should see a copy: – I entreat you to receive it in testimony that you have endeared yourself to one English heart – by your just appreciation, & ardent, heartfelt encomiums on our beloved Bard.
I cannot express the high gratification your Lectures have given – they are indeed a rich intellectual  feast – & seemed to rouse in me thoughts, feelings & perceptions which were never elicited before. –
I am a very obscure & I half fear you may think bold, individual, and must therefore again apologize for this approaching you: –
To be assured that you do not think that I have „wronged myself to write in such a cause“ would be a satisfaction, & to receive such assurance in even one English sentence (for German is, alas! quite a dead letter to me,)  from your own hand, would indeed delight – Sir, your most grateful peruser, & warm admirer –
