FROM the respect I bear to the critical powers of Mr. Curtis, when exerted upon his own compositions, I shall mark the following variations in the readings of the St. James's Chronicle from those of the printed paper originally written,revised, and circulated by Mr. C. himself. I hope, therefore, to escape the flightestimputation of injustice, either to the meaning and the stile of the author, such as they are, or to the taste and zeal of the republifher, whoever he may be.

VARIÆ L E CTION E S. For, Of Mr. Curtis's having written, as it stands in the proem of the printed paper, the Chronicle reads that the Rev. Mr. Curtis, Rector of Solihul | brother to alderman Curtis ) bad written

At the beginning of the 4th sentence of the great work itself, that is inserted in the printed paper, and omitted in the Chronicle before the words, be then fufpected.

Anonymously in the first page of the printed paper, is spelled anonimoufy in the first column of the Chronicle; but the Italics are preserved.

Letters, page 3d line ist of the printed paper is made letter in the second column of the Chronicle.

Cut of in the printed paper is made cut off in the Chronicle.
Author in the printed paper is uniformly spelled authour in the Chronicle.

N. B. Upon the application of my Bookseller, I have permitted a second edition of the sequel to be published : I have corrected such errors of the press as I could difcover in the first, and I have introduced some enlarged, and some additional, notes into the Appendix. In respect to Mr. C., I have made a few observations upon his late narrative about the riots, and assigned my reasons for making them. But I have forborne to avail myself of those important illustrations which some recent discoveries about the charity schools at Birmingham, would have enabled me to throw upon his talent of forgetfulness.
