That a Compilation which neither abounds with the Ravings of Faction, the Effuñions cí Obfcenity, the Gall of Calumny, or the Suggeftions of Impiety, fhould have not only ftood its Ground for fo long a Series of Years, as this has, might feem fomething wonde ful; but where is the Wonder, when we advert to the delicate Hands by which it is pennet, the radiant Eyes by which it is perufed, the elegant Forms by which it is encouraged.

Though Succefs may fometimes produce Supinenefs, to the Generous it infpires Animation. While we pen the Maxim, we feel its Effects, and are determined by the utm Exertions of Industry, not only to fuftain that Character we have already acquired, but increase that Fund of Efteem with which we have been fo liberally honoured. New Scen of Knowlegde have been prefented to us, new Acquifitions of Correfpondence have earicd qur Stores; and we fpeak with a Degree of Certainty, that our next annual Collecti promifes to be more entertaining, more improving, more respectable than any that preceded.
