Banished from their native soil, and persecuted through all continental kingdoms, the Polish Wanderers, seeking refuge on the shores of Britain, have been received with a generous hospitality, which has alleviated their undeserved misfortunes. Gratitude for this benevolence towards my unhappy brethren, and the desire of keeping alive feelings of compassion for the fate of my suffering country, have induced me to write the following pages, which I respectfully dedicate to the noble-minded and generous inhabitants of Britain, to whom I submit them, in the intimate conviction, that their sympathy for our past and present sufferings will not cease until their energetic assistance shall have enabled us to recover our native country.
