LITERARY REPOSITORY,

VOLUME III.-1792.

WITH GOD-LIKE WISDOM, WIDE THY WINGS EXPAND.

Printed and sold by Thomas and JAMES SWORDS, at their offics;

No. 27, William Street,

P R E FACE.

THOUGH the fubfcription to this work has by no means afforded a compensation adequate to the trouble and expence attending it; yet, it is a satisfaction peculiarly gratifying to the Editors to reflect, that it has thus far outlived any attempts of the kind heretofore made in this city—it is a satisfaction that considerably lessens the regrets that might have been felt at the want of proper encouragement; and which has no small weight in inducing a further continuance of the New-York Magazine,

In contemplating this work, the Editors conceived they had sufficient grounds to expect a generous reward for the labours they were going to begin; at an early stage of it, however, they saw little advantage would be the result; and the experience of three years has convinced them, that every expectation of a liberal compensation niust be defeated : Thus disappointed, it could not have been matter of furprise had they long since discontinued it, especially as other means of employment presented prospects sufficiently flattering and advantageous, and which could not possibly fail of insuring success.

It must be acknowledged, that the chief inducements which have led to a prosecution of this publication heretofore, have been, the hope of a more general circulation when once it became known, and a pretty punctual compliance in our city subscribers to that article of the conditions which respects the mode of payment.-To those, then, who have fulfilled their engagements in this particular, the Editors. return their grateful thanks; and, while they hereafter en

deavour

deavour to perform the duties of their office, they feel alsured, that the same spirit of punctuality will emulate the breast of every friend to science and literature. And,

As the continuance of the New York Magazine will not depend upon a prospect of future Tubscriptions, the Editors fervently hope, that those who have honoured it with their patronage from its commencement, and since, will still

prove its zealous supporters, and extend to it that protection, without which its existence may be rendered perhaps problematical.

During the present year, considerable additions have been made to the subscription list, and few have been found disposed to relinquish their right of subscription, except where particular circumstances rendered it prudent and adviseable :- A better proof of an increase of merit is not wanting; and the Editors are happy to observe, that, as far as they can learn, their endeavours to meet the wishes of their Patrons have been fortunate in an high degree.--In soliciting the further and continued patronage of an enlightened People, the Editors pledge themselves for the faithful performance of their duty; and in proportion to the encouragement they receive, they have not a doubt but that an increased pleasure will rəsult from their labours.
