TRANS LATED INTO OUR VERN.ACULAR ENG LIs II to NGUE,

BY JOHN BULL, ESQ.

With numerous Additions, Interpotations, and Inprovements, by the Editor, and different Branches of
the Bul/ Family.

“ Laughing is the high prerogative of man, and that subline and noble quality which distinguishes
him from the brute creation. Those who cannot laugh gracefully, heartily, and by the hour at a time,
scarcely ought to be ranked among the human species. The sayings of Monius, the writings of Demo.
critus, and the attic works of Joe Miller, should, therefore, be studied in our Universitios and Tap-
rooms, Palaces and Cottages, Drawing-rooms and Kitchens, not only for health and pleasure, but from
due regard to the dignity and honourable distinction of man.”—G. A. Sr: R v ENs.
