PREFACE.

HE favourable reception

Tthat the Annual Regifter has been

honoured with from an indulgent Public, has made it no lefs our duty than our intereft to exert our utmost endeavours to make our work as worthy of their attention as we are able. The time of publication we are sensible is a point which it is our duty and intereft to attend to; and it is never without extreme regret that we have found the publication delayed beyond the beginning of the fummer. But for the lateness of the present publication we have only one excufe to make -a very fevere illness which for several

ral weeks confined the gentleman principally concerned in the work to his bed. This created an unavoidable delay; but the first efforts of his returning health were employed in endeavours that the diligence and attention in the execution might in fome measure compensate for the lateness of the publication.
