one, which I am almost ashamed to intimate but which, justice to myself, as well as a fincere desire, by infuring flability to this work, to be as far serviceable to the community, of which I have the honour to be a meinber, as my flender talents and my situation will admit, forbid me to pafs over in silence. This shoal, the danger of which I deprecate, is the want of a due punctuality in paying the subscriptions. These being finall, each individual is but too apt to suppose it a matter of great indifference whether he pays his quota at the e'me appointed, or in fix or iwelve months afterwards. This is a great inistake *: for let it be observed that the aggregate of the fe fums (however trivial and insignificant each may be, taken separately) is the only fund for defray. ing the great and inevitable expenses ,of the undertaking. There cannot be deferred. They are all payable in ready money : and it would but ill satisfy the paper-maker, the journeyman printer, &c. &c. 10 tell them, when money was due to them, that I could not pay it :--that I expe&ted money from my subscribers in two, three, or four months ;-and that I should sken pay them. If I told them such a Canterbury tale, I need not expect any more of their services. It is, further, to be observed, that the expense of sending twice, thrice, or, as is often the case, four times for the amount of a subscription, bears nó finall proportion to the fum received. After this explanation, it must be unnecessary to request of those subscribers, who wilh success to the Museum, ur delire its proprietor may receive a reward for his earnest endeayours to gratify them, that they will, at the completion of each volume, renew their subscription for the fucceeding one. Thole gentlemen, who, agreeably to the original plan, have already done his, are entitled to my chanks.

I ann, with dae regard and eltcein,
the public's devoted fervant,

M. C. Lewes, July 87,1787.


* Need I appeal to the printers of deceased news-papers and magazines, to prove the ruinirus consequences of this miltake ?
