Dedication.

To the American Philosophical Society held in Phia

ladelphia, for promoting Useful Knowledge.

Gentlemen,

The substance of the following Essay was, in consequence of a duty devolved by you upon the Author, pronounced in the form of an oration, before your very respectable body on the 37th of February in the year 1787. As you were pleased to express your satisfaction with it, and it has been received with a considerable portion of public favour both in America and Europe, I have been encouraged, in the midst of my other nu. merous and indispensable avocations, to turn my attention lately to enlarge and improve it. It comes, therefore, in its new form, to pay its homage to you to whom it owes its existence; and, if it should again be found worthy of your approbation, tó solicit your patronage.

I am, Gentlemen, with the profoundest respect for you individually, and as a society devoted to promote the interests of Philosophical Science in this new world,

Your most obedient,
and most humble servant,

SAMUEL STANHOPE SMITH.
