N annual Preface, like an annual New-Year's Ode, must be in a great Mcafure the fame Thing over and over again : And as the one generally tells us, that the Sun still continues to shine, and to warm and
enlighten the World, which · Nobody disputes ; so the other acquaints us, that the MAGAZINE still keeps up its Reputation, and continues to entertain or instruct Mankind, which every Body who buys it, does by that very Act allow. And, indeed, what can be said upon such an Occasion ? To launch out into little spiteful Invectives against our Competitors, or to fit down with the malignant Purpose of depreciating their Labours, and picking out their smallest Faults, is an Employment too despicable and invidious for any one but the meanest Scribbler. It is true, the Enemies which have in general appeared against us, have been such poor, maimed, fickly, and
miserable Opponents, that it is ridiculous even to appear in the field against them ; somewhat like leading out an Army to attack an Hospital : But what Glory can attend the Triumph over Impotence or Imbecillity ? Let them languish out their Days in Peace, and run the short Course which Nature hath appointed them, without Interruption. As their Lives have been unnoticed, their Deaths are unregarded; like a Weed in the Defart, which lives and dies without offending any one with its Stink.
All that can with Propriety be said on this Occafion, is to make proper Acknowicdcments to such of our lcarned and ingenious Correspondents, as have enabkd us to support this Work with Credit and Reputation for so many years; to return our Thanks to the Publick for their kind Encouragement; and to promise that we will still continue our Endeavours for their Entertainment, with grateful Affiduity and unwearicd Care.
