PHILLIP HOWARD FRERE, ESQ. M.A.

FELLOW AND TUTOR OF DOWNING COLLEGE, CAMBRIDGE.

MY DEAR FRERE,

YOUR prompt permission to allow this work to be inscribed to you is only one of the many kindnesses which you have shewn me.

The application of musical science to the English language has been so successful in exposing the true foundations of its Rhythmus, as to originate the opinion, that music is destined to perform other and higher functions in our discourse.

We are yet ignorant of what the functions of music were in the Greek language; we, however, begin to perceive the truism, that Prosody

vi

and Music are intimately connected, and thence the conclusion, that without musical aid all attempts to discover the ancient Greek Prosody must fail.

If you, my dear sir, possessed as you are of all the requisite knowledge, would turn your attention to the subject, there is a hope that you could restore that Prosody, and thus reanimate the dry bones of our Greek Scholarship.

I am,

MY DEAR FRERE,

Your sincere Friend,

RICHARD CULL
