Hoc illud est præcipuè in coGNITIONE RERUM salubre ac frugiferum,-omnis te exempli
documenta in illustri posita monumento intueri; inde tibi tuæque reipublicæ, quod imitere,
capias ; inde fædum inceptu, fædum exitu, quod vites.-Liv.

Who writes a history, his principal aim should be truth, and to relate especially the ex-
traordinaries both of good and ill. Of good, that men, taken with the honour done them in
story, may be encouraged to perform the like: of ill, that when men see the infamy that they
are branded with, they may leap from all that should make them so stigmatized.

MY DEAR SIR,

In my desire to select you as the patron of a book intended in great measure for The Young, I am well satisfied that all who have had the happiness of a long acquaintance with you will both acquit me of a design to flatter you, and readily approve my choice.
