P R E F A C E.
THIS edition of Mr. Thomson's works
was designed by him, and must be considered by the reader, as a colleЕtion of such of his works as he thought worth preserving, corrested and amended. If therefore any detached
poems of his have appeared in other colle&tions, or are to be found in manuscript in private hands, they are such as his judgment rejezted; and the publication of them in any future edition of his works, or otherwise, would be contrary to his will, and prejudicial to his memory.
It is hoped, that all his writings will appear much more advantageously in their present form, than they did in their first publication.
