DEDICATION.

To the NOBLEMEN and GENTLEMEN

who are in the habit of frequenting the Reading-Room of the Publisher of the Quarterly Review, in Albemarle-Street,

MY LORDS AND GENTLEMEN,

ON

N the morning when the Quarterly Review

comes out, the new volume, in shining covers, of the fairest whity-brown paper, is placed before you, on a large table covered with neat green baizę. The polished ivory cutter lies on the baize, ready to your hand: methinks I see you put on your spectacles, and prepare to partake the long-expected treat. I will say nothing of the complacent looks of Mr. MURRAY, whọ on this day appears more courteous than usual. You have taken your chạirs; and having cut open some of the leaves, and reading as you go, you will come to an article entitled “ SPENCE's Anecdotes." You will there find many unfounded charges made, and much railing and raying uttered, against a late Editor of the Works of Pope.
