SURELY THERE'S VARIETY ;
ALSO A SEASONING SLIGHT OF LUCUBRATION:
A BIRD'S-EYE VIEW, TOO, OF THAT WILD SOCIETY ;
A SLIGHT GLANCE THROWN ON MEN OF EVERY STATION;
IF YOU HAVE NOUGHT ELSE, HERE 'S AT LEAST SATIETY,
BOTH IN PERFORMANCE AND IN PREPARATION.

ADVERTISEMENT.

In offering these hurried pages to the World, the Writer cannot be ignorant of the extent of his responsibility, and the gravity of his offences in every way. As to the execution, his sole aim in publishing being to turn the few opportunities which suggested his reflections to some practical account in his own Country; he was little solicitous about the manner, provided he might be intelligible. But whatever his errors and oversights, he determines to avoid all controversy, though it will always afford him pleasure to be set right, if done with clearness and candour.
