The success that has attended his endeavours must remain with an impartial public to decide ; but he can with truth affirin, that his great aim has been to join the useful with the agreeable, to excite in the bofom of his readers a sympathy for their species, and to invite them to the practice of VIRTUE.

Under this conviction of the purity of his own motives, he ventures to deprecate the censure of those who may think the means he has taken inadequate to the end propofed; mankind having long since conceded, that to have meant well is at leali to merit fuccess, although a deficiency of talent, or an erroneous judgment, may disable us from obtaining it; and this appears to have been the opinion of the celebrated ADDISON when in' his fine play of caro he makes Portius fay:

“ 'I is not in mortais to command success,

“ But we'll do more, Sempronius, we'll deserve it.” As to typographical execution, it cannot suffer by a comparison with any publications of the present day, being printed on an entire new type, caft expressly for the purpose by that ingenious artist MR. CASLON; and its price must certainly be allowed to render it the cheapest collection of the kind.

l'pon the whole, therefore, he indulges the hope, that it will be found an instructive and entertaining POCKET COMPANION, equally acceptable to the traveller, and the social circle assembled round the friendly fire-fide; and also, that it may not be thought an unwelcome recreation to juvenile minds, in as much, as while it unbends them from more severe fludies, it will form their tiyle, and give them a correct idea of those beauties which so eminently adorn our ENGLISH POETS.
