[ 7 ] TO

The very obliging manner in which your Highness
has been pleased to permit me to dedicate the following
work to you, the favourable sentiments which your High-
ness has graciously expressed regarding it and my former
work, together with the liberality and patronage you have
so condescendingly afforded me, demand my most grateful

My sole object in publishing this and my former
Dictionary dedicated by permission to your Highness's
late brother and predecessor, together with other import-
ant works which I have been permitted to carry through
the press, has been a sincere desire to diffuse real useful
knowledge and learning among your Highness's subjects.

The works just referred to have required great
labour and attention on your part, and I trust my labours
will, through the blessing of Divine Providence, be even-
tually attended by beneficial results. [ 8 ] Your Highness has always patronized the dissemi-
nation of literature and education, and when these are
grounded on the best principles the results will most as-
suredly prove highly advantageous.

Such results I shall not be permitted to see, but
that the life of your Highness may be long spared, and that
you may be permitted to witness great and essential bene-
fits issuing from the various plans now in operation for
promoting real good education among your Highness's
subjects is the heartfelt wish of

Your Highness's
Most obliged
Humble Servant,

COTTAYAM, November 1849.
