The Plates, and execution of this Work, are now before the Public; and, as the sale sufficiently testifies that they have recommended themselves, it is needless to say any thing in their favour. The Author may also be at least permitted to add, that as this Book constitutes a literary monument to the memory of the Princess Charlotte, beside being calculated to promote the diffusion of loyal sentiments, and moral and religious truth, without regard to sect or party; it forms a very suitable present for those young Ladies and Gentlemen upon whose opening minds their friends desire to impress those important principles, which equally conduce to individual prosperity and to the security of the State.
