contemporary print. We are confident, however,
that there is liberality enough in the lovers of litera-
ture to pardon an occasional oversight of this kind.

And here we are desirous of rendering an act of
justice to a very respectable individual: we find that
fome of the admirable pieces of humour copied in our
last volume from the Anti-Gallican, were originally
published (among a numerous collection of Loyal
and Patriotic Papers) by Mr. Asperne, Buokseller, of
Cornhill; whose professional exertions, at the critical
period when it seemed necessary to rouse the ancient
spirit of the country to refist the audacious darings of
France, we remember, were duly appreciated, and, we
hope, liberally recompensed by the Public.-The ar-
ticles alluded to ought, of course, to have been assigned
to their original publisher; : but as we were not aware
of the circumstance till our volume was in circulation,
we think it more honourable to make a late reparation
than none.

Jan. 4, 1805.

Volume, in The European Magazine for March 1804, p. 217–219.
