CONCLUSION.

I have now concluded what I had to say on the drawing-room dances, and I may at least do myself the justice of having brought together all the observations that I had faithfully collected day by day, from the time of my first beginning to teach.

However conscientiously I may have given myself to the compilation of this work, I doubt not that, such as it is, it contains omissions, or even errors that I might wish to rectify. I shall be grateful for any advice I may receive on this subject, and shall not fail to profit by it, either in a new edition, or in the ordinary course of my lessons.

As to the form of the book, it should be recollected what I said in the preface, and they who have now read it to an end, will easily understand the value that I set upon it. If I have been comprehended by the public, as I find myself every day by my pupils, I ought to be fully satisfied. In a word, if the book of The Drawing-Room Dances ever needed justification, I may confine myself to repeating in the last page what I said in the very first—"In writing I imagined I was still giving a lesson in the art."

THE END.

J. BILLING,
PRINTER AND STEREOTYPER,
WOKING SURREY.
