When our dullness is complained of, it would be but charity in him to reflect how much pains that same dullness has cost us- more, he may be assured, than our brighter intervals, where we sprung nimbly forward with an easy weight, instead of toiling like a carriers horse, whose slow and heavy pace argues the load he draws, and the labour he endures: alas! for us poor Novelists, if there was no mercy for dull authors, and our countrymen, like the barbarous Libethrians of old, should take it into their minds to banish music and the muses out of the land, and murder every Orpheus that did not fiddle to their taste.

They should consider, that the man, who makes a book, makes a very pretty piece of furniture- and if they will but consign us to a quiet station on a shelf, and give us wherewithal to cover us in a decent trim, the worst amongst us will serve to fill up the file, and stop a gap in the ranks.This is an edition of a classical book first published in the eighteenth century.
