Excerpt from A Summer's Day at Hampton Court: Being a Guide to the Palace and Gardens; With an Illustrative Catalogue of the Pictures According to the New Arrangement, Including Those in the Apartments Recently Opened to the Public
Your Lordship in this instance has achieved an object always deemed important by all legislators, by adding to the sum of human enjoyment, and doing what must eventually tend to refine the manners, and raise a taste for higher Objects of pursuit among the working-classes of the community.
The claims of this little volume are not of a very high order. Should its contents, however, in any degree tend to interest and improve a class for which it was more particularly designed, I shall feel that I have been instrumental in furthering your Lordship's wishes, and that the task has not been undertaken in vain.
