TO THE READER,

owing entirely to this gentleman, who was fo indefatigable in his attention to fee
every thing done accurately, that there is fcarce a meafure in this work which
he did not take himfelf.

At the fame time that, by this declaration, I difclaim any Ihare of merit which
the publick, uninformed of the truth, might have given me, I cannot help
in return indulging my vanity with a circumftance, which I am fure does me
honour, viz. that my being the publifher of thefe meets is owing to Mr. Daw-
kins his friendfhip for me, who while he highly enjoys the pleafure of contri-
buting to the advancement of arts in this manner, declines the profitswhich may
arife from this publication.

If I venture to mention this fingle inftance of my friend's regard for me, I
lhall compound with him for that liberty, by fuppreffing others without number:
To join Mr. Dawkins' name with mine (where I muft (till continue to be the only
gainer) is, I fear, little lefs than impertinent, but it is the impertinence of gra-
titude, which, like love, is never more aukward in it's declarations than when it is
moft fincere and in earneft.

OBERT WOOD.
