All indelicacy has been carefully excluded; and while every thing that was ridiculously lofty or contemptibly mean was avoided, much attention was paid to adapt the whole to the taste of general readers. The authenticity of each paragraph was also a matter of prime consideration with the Editor; and he trusts the great number of respectable authorities he has used will greatly enhance the value of his book.
