ACKNOWLEDGM We acknowledge ourselves to have been entertained by P. Quarre's Description of a celebrated building in the West, ridiculing, we believe, the description of a Library in Dorsethire, and admire the humour of it ; but as we believe the majority of our Readers are not liable to Dr. Johnson's censure of Pope and Swist, who, he says, “ had an unnatural delight in ideas physically impure, such as every other tongue utters with unwillingness, and of which every ear shrinks from the mention,” we must decline inserting his favour. On other subjects we shall be glad to hear from him.
C. J.'s correspondence will be acceptable.
We have not received the remainder of D.'s Journal ; and we make it a rule to begin no subject until the whole of it is before us.
The account of the Life and Writings of Captain Edward Thompson is received.
Since our last we have received the following Letters: Buxton Lawn's (in our next), Judex, A. F. W.S. Lenitus, The Man of the Hill, Eetjey Tboughtles, and Humpden,
The continuation of the Critique on Warringan's Wales, Boswell's Tour to obe Hebrides, and Transaciions of the Literary Society ar Mancbefter, as well as Theatrical Register, with various other articles, intended for this Number, are unavoidably omitted for want of room.
