It may not be possible in the first Place to inform your Readers, I intend once a Fortnight to present them, by the Help of this Blog, with a short Epistle, which I presume will add somewhat to their Entertainment and Knowledge.
And since it is observed, the Generality of People, nowadays, are unwilling either to commend or dispraise what they read, until they are in some measure informed who or what the Author of it is, whether he be poor or rich, old or young, a Scholar or a Journey Man, and thus able to provide their Opinion of the Performance, according to the Knowledge which they have of the Author’s Circumstances, it may not be amiss to begin with a short Account of my past Life and present Condition, that the Reader may not be at a Loss to judge whether or not my Lucubration’s are worthy of his reading.
It will be, in its time, how our Journey shall begin. Until then, I am but a humble servant.
