of tastes, and our compliments wait on the witty as well as the wife ; we trust that, with their affistance, our next Va lume will be a more miscellaneous production, and give new satisfaction and pleasure.
The Publishers indulge a pride in thinking, that this Volume will be preserved in the LIBRARIES of men of taste and literature, and that they will find it a useful repository.
And, in a word, sat fapienti, as the old phrase is, that they will be so much pleased with it, as to leave room on the shelves for the succeeding FRUITS of their labour.
For NOVEMBER 1783.

T H E printers of a late publication, entitled the
Boston Magazine, for O&tober, 1783, fully sensible of ics many defects, think it their duty to confess their plan was the effect of haste. But they Aattered themselves with support, which has, in great measure, fail’d. Their motives however, were laudable and honest. And they can say with truth, they feel themselves happy in the idea, that while they intended their own emolument, they believed, their delign, if carried into exccution, would be productive of many advantages both to individyals, and the public. Sanguine, However, as their expectations first were, they now find themfelves unequal to the talk; and were they still deftitute of affistance, should submit to the neceffity of relinquishing the pursuit. But they feel themselves peculiarly happy to inform the public, that they now have the fullest assurance of fuch asistance, as will, in all probability, render the future
Numbers more acceptable. The first publication, they beg of their subscribers and others, may not be ranked among the numbers of the Boston Magazine: And shall take the lic berty of calling the Magazine for November, the first numa ber. They cannot buc hope, that their late publication being too hasty a production, will not so operate as to hurt the original design, or discourage any future communications from gentlemen of taste and leisure. Should che Magazine be executed according to the original plan, the printers cannot but flatter themselves that every encouragement will be granted it, as such institutions not only afford amusement to individuals, but are countenanced by every principle of a free Republic.
