THE following CHARACTERS are said to owe

their modern arrangement, to the New Year's Whim that precedes them : but whether they found their way to that universal, and fashionable Règifter the MORNING Post, by the channel of accident, or design, the present Compiler will not venture to determine.--He deems it fufficient for him to have collected them carefully,- to have corrected their typographical errors, and presented them to the world with additions from the other Prints who imitated the design ;-thus forming a general collection of these Moderæ * Likenefjes for the amusement of the Beau Monde, and proving to the world, that the Characters drawn by the pencil of SHAKESPEAR, are friking copies from the universal School of Na. ture, and will therefore represent the features of every age, down to the latest pofterity.
