ficial Influence over many succeeding days, whatever might be the powers or situation of the Reader. The Truisms will often remind of Truths not the less important for being

simple and obvious. And the Aggregate is such a Mass of deep, discriminative, acute, and comprehensive Observation, as could hardly be suppos’d to come within the Life and Powers of one Man; and that Life not a long one. The verbal Liberties (for they are not often more) were alınost necessary to reduce many of the Remarks to the Aphoristic Forms: but even the alteration of a Word is almost invariably characteriz'd by it's proper Mark; and greater by correspondent Signs. Lipsius, in his POLITICA, has pursued a similar Plan. The Characters which I have us'd have been such as with least inconvenience could be supplied in the Country, in a sufficient quantity; and the Extracts being distinguishe by the Names of their respective Plays, the Reader may the more readily consult the Passage as it stands in the Original. By a Mistake which was not discover'd in due time, all the Numbers after 2795 are a Centenary too forward: but this will not in the least affect the Accuracy of the Index; in which uncommon care has been taken that it might be concise and at the same time full. The Index itself will give more than a slight hint, upon the mere Inspection, of the Scope and Range of the Mind of our truly philosophic Poet: it will shew on what Topics his Thoughts most frequently dwelt; and the Resuls will be found not less honorable to his Heart than to his Genius, to his Virtues, his Sensibility, his Veneration for the Deity, his Benevolence, and his Knowledge of Mankind. There might be found many Aphorisms which, had Self Love guided me rather than Justice to SHAKESPERE, and the pleasure and Benefit due to others, I might have been tempted to omit.

These will probably be found not aniong the least useful.The Time has been long, which this little Collection has taken, and the Labor considerable: but I can not think that either has been misapplied.

The Figures are consecutively arrang'd. A Decenary, Cen.

tenary, or Millenary once expresst, is understood till the
next succeeds: thus 0, 5, is to be read 10, 15, 18.
And 200, 30, 40, 4=200, 280, 240, 244. And 1000, 110,
20, 200, 350, 690—is 1000, 1110, 1120, 1200, 1950, 1690,
The Comma indicates smaller intervals; the Semicolon
those of Hundreds, if an Hundred has been completed ;
the full Stop those of Thousands. In Numbers below 1000,
the . precedes a new Hundred. Figures with a - imply
continued Numbers: Thus 20-8 imply reference to all the
Numbers between 20 and 28, with each included.
