I may add, that in the choice of his subjects, he was not only bound to take up passing events, often of little permanent interest- but also to consult, with a view of improvement, the taste and temper of the reading public in that age. Notwithstanding these limitations, I trust that this Volume, as well as its predecessor, will be found to contain so great variety, that few subjects of ordinary interest are left untouched- and that fine thoughts, happily expressed, abound in almost every page.The reader will find herein little of purely political or religious controversy- but it may be needful to bear in mind the great civil and social changes effected during the one hundred and fifty years that have elapsed between the composition of these writings and the present time.
