N a book published in the year

1756, 1 related the principal transactions of my life, from my entrance into the university to the day of my marriage, in the year 1725; and endeavoured, by the way, to entertain my Readers with a variety of notions and remarks.

I now proceed to tell the remainder of my story, and to lay before the Public fome more of my obfervations and hints: This fecond part is chiefly a further vindication of myself; and the observations I add on subjects and matters of various kinds, are such reflections as resulted from the reason

and

(iv) and nature of things, and were formed by a judgment free, and unbiaffed by any authority. My own apology is the principal thing, interspersed with real characters of several forts; and the additions to it, are as many solid, natural, and delicate adventitious things as came in my way,

This is my book. I write with modesty, and I purpose to do good. I imagine then, that all Critics (except the Critical Reviewers) will wink at the blemishes of a laudable writing. Scholars and men of sense (who are above malevolence and the supercilious temper,) can bear deformities in a long work, and juftly lay them on the imperfection of human nature. They know it is incapable of faultless productions,

FELICES.
