O this Edition is subjoined (for the fake of those Readers to whom it

may not prove unwelcome) an Explanation, or rather, in most Places, a liberal Imitation, of all the Latin Inscriptions and Quotations throughout this Work, by Mr. Hull. That Gentleman's well-known Friendship for Mr. Shenstone, and Willingness to oblige, being his sole Inducements to this (as he chooses to have it called) trifling Addition, the Editor thinks it no more than a just Return of Gratitude to let his Purchasers know to whom they are beholden for it. Be it remembered however that it was executed in a Country Retirement, where our eminent Translators of the Classics were not at hand to be consulted.
