Printed for J. Fletcher, at the Oxford Theater
HE authors and compilers of this Magazine profess so strict an impartiality,, as to every subject they treat, that they will neither venture to blame, nor to recommend, that fpirit of politics, which, during the preceding year, the public of England has chofen for their chief entertainment. The great events that have happened for these twelve-months paft, both in the field and the cabinet, in fome measure justify that curiofity which is natural to a free people, who think themselves interested in the conduct of their fuperiors.
It has, during the courfe of this work, been our endeavour to gratify that curiofity in a candid manner, without attaching ourfelves to any party; and we have all along endeavoured to foften the feverity that may arife from the political difquifitions we have exhibited, either by ftrictures, or pieces of polite learning, in almost every art, and in every branch of science.
As we cannot help flattering ourselves, that the return of Peace may induce readers of all ranks to return to their usual tafte for literary entertainments, we will venture to affure them, in the ftile of New-fet-up-publicans, that we have laid in a good stock of every kind, and shall always be able to produce fuch variety of entertainment, that every gueft fhall find fomething to January, 1763. please
