T1 i s Work being perhaps one of the mrof fingular
productions ever offered to the Public, I think it
right to give the Reader a fhort sketch of what he
is going to perufe.-I have endeavoured to arra.gec
matters in fome degree like a large garden, where
one meets with the fweet-fmelling flower and the
thorn, the gold-bcfpang!cd fly and loathfome rep-
tile, the richeft glowing plumage and the darkeft
shades; the whole fo variegated as to afford, I hope,
both infor:r:.'. :n and amusement, without racking or
depreffing the fpirits, and d;--..:,g- the mind; not
indeed in the modern pomp and brilliancy of ftyle,
but in a fimple tale, where TRUTH is the chief or-
nament.
