OR A VIEW OF THE
Of the YEAR 1760.
T E have now brought our Register
V to the third year, and we hope it has been conducted to the satisfaction of the Public. In our collections we have continued our attention to lay before our Readers the most striking and useful of the detached pieces that have appeared during the year, and to study variety as far as it could be done without loading the work, or introducing frivolous and impertinent matter.
The Reader will find some difference in the paging between this and the preceding volumes. In order to allow sufficient time for digesting the History and Chronicle, it was necessary to put the other articles of the collection earlier to the press; this has divided the book into two parts, from the beginning of each of which the pages are numbered.
With regard to that history, we are extremely sensible of the defects to which from the very nature of our plan, we ar ittle able, to say nothing of our own particula:
inability. We have no occasion to bespeak , the candour and indulgence of the Public, * which we have already abundantly experi
enced. In our situation, as the annual relaters of events, we are unavoidably subject.
