LETTER
TO
THE PUBLISHER.

HONOURED SIR,
     
I HOPE you will excuse the
liberty I take in writing to you; but having written
a few directions and observations for the use of
Gentlemen's Servants, I was advised, after letting
some of my friends see them, to ask you if you
thought they might be made useful if published.
My endeavour has been to promote the comfort of
those whom I have had the honour to serve, and to
benefit my fellow-servants. Having been often
employed myself in instructing young persons
who had never been out in service before, I imagined
that a set of rules regularly laid down for the
use of domestic servants might be very acceptable,
and save a great deal of trouble to such ladies and
gentlemen as only keep one footman, and are therefore
obliged, if they happen to engage one who is
ignorant, either to instruct him themselves, or
to part with him, even when he may be likely to
suit them very well in the course of a little time.
I thought, likewise, that it would be very useful
to servants who, coming from the country,
may not have had an opportunity of improving
themselves as they might have done in town. I
have endeavoured to direct those for whose service
I have written, not only in their business, but their
conduct and principles, and have given them scriptural
examples respecting their duties, and the
practice of all that is required of them. If you,
Sir, approve the design of my work, and will condescend
to become the publisher of it, I hope
that any defects in its style and execution will be
kindly overlooked by the public, under the consideration
that it is the production of one who has
not had any of the advantages of education, but
who is earnestly desirous of doing all the good that
may come within his power.

I am, honoured Sir,
Your most obedient and humble Servant,
ONESIMUS.
