THE present Edition of this truly useful, and much esteemed Work, has been carefully and critically executed. Many errors, which by being

o frequently and carelessly printed, had crept into

[ocr errors]

most of the former editions, have in this been corrected and revised, . .

The Marginal Notes, explaining to the Scholar the various Humours and Passions as they occur, and which are so peculiarly useful, have been put at full length almost in every instance, and great care, has been taken to affe them in their proper places ;. whereas, in most of the former editions, they were so much ańhreviated and misplaced, that it was with difficulty the Master, much less the Scholar, could comprehend their meaning.

An elegan ode (page 276) has been added; no other alterations have taken place,

- This being the FIRST Baltimore Edition, the Publisher indulges the pleasing hope, that it will

yield, by its execution and correctness, general

satisfaction.
BALTIMoap, 25th March 1804.
