14 To the honor ot Mi. Berquin's tafle,
it may be said, that he has united simple
elegance with intereding variety, but ri
gidly fepaiat. d both from the flightelt ap
proath of whatever is vulgar or puerile f
a merit much more caliiy praifedtnan imi
tated. The art of ail uling ch.ld e«,whilll
at the fame time the Infant Genius is rail
ed and rhe Heart mended, appears tram
lis works to be no contemptible effort oi'
:he mind. Wberevei, therefore, the uti-
lity of fucli ah undertaking is acknowledg
ed, the reputation of Mr. bciquin must
ever be heid in deferveri e'ffeem.
" Happily such i< the agreeable ♦erfatili
:y of Mr. A.i'd feenins, that
it would be diiheu-t to proi ounce in what
department he excels : whether in the
lively or the pathetic; tlie'fmiple language
of narrative, or the animated points of
couverfauoo : whither in Dfrcwd remarks
upon private life, or in florid description
of the beauties of nature.
" pieces of every various excellence
that is to be found in the writings of Mr.
Berquin, compote the following volume,
which,- it is hoped, will be thought a valu
able fubltitute (wl.e.e fucli may be prefer

works of the fa;iie author."
