TO THE HONOURABLE

SIMON STERNE,

OF THE BAR OF THE CITY OF NEW YORK.

MY DEAR MR. STERNE:-
In placing your name upon the initial

page

of a work upon the American and English law of railways, I have at once gratified a sentiment and made a payment on account of a personal and professional obligation. I have also, as it seems to me, conformed at the same time in some sort to the fitness of things. My essay is, moreover, dignified by the superscription of a name peculiarly identified for all time to come with the history, development, and progress of the American railway. I know of no man here or abroad who knows more of the subject, or appreciates more keenly its difficulties, or comprehends more broadly the scheme, or divines more wisely the future. Counting your friendship among my most valued possessions, I am, Sir, cordially and respectfully yours,

CHARLES F. BEACH, JR.
