Rose Douglas, Sketches of a Country Parish
Being the Autobiography of a Scotch Minister's Daughter in two volumes (1851)

While reading lately the preface to a work by a highly esteemed and popular author of my own country, I lighted upon the following passage: "He who dedicates, more than expresses his gratitude. By his choice of a patron, he intimates also, as if by specimen, the class which he would fain select as his readers; or, as I should perhaps rather express myself, he specifies the peculiar cast of intellect and range of acquirement from which he anticipates the justest appreciation of his labours, and the deepest interest in the subject of them."

I need say nothing more. This little Work is dedicated to the "Ministers' Daughters" of Scotland, by their affectionate Sister,

A Minister's Daughter.
