I don't think that in matters fa important as: those that were then in agitation, any. Author can be allowed to give a loose to bis Wit and Iman gination, for tous one runs the risque of making an Autbor say a great many things be perhaps never dreamt of , and in my bumble Opinion an. Author can never be too fcrupuloufly a Slave to bis Original, in those occasions. Every bonest Man muft then sacrifice Elegance to Exactness. It is better to be too stiff than too loose. What I now say is to be understood only of fuck Occurrences, when a Writer is to translate into another Language the Words of a Man that muft ferve for a Rule, to determine what bis trui Sentiments have been on fucb or such really material Points : But I pretend not to extend ibis Maxim to all forts of Subjeāts ; mucb lefs, to make it serve for an Excufe of my Style, for wbich I very kncerely beg the Indulgence of my Reader. I know, that I falll be understood by ell, but I am no less certain, that those alone wbo, in a Narration, prefer things and exaktness to meer words, will be able to read my Book with Satisfaction.

Experience coill make me more cautions with rea gard to this in the next Volume ; and since the gyas of three Perfons employed, were not suficient to fender this work more perfect, I fall take new measures hereafter, in order to meet with a better, Succefs,

I fall receive with all imaginable regard the good Advices, which I hope judicious People will be so kind to procure me on this forft Volume ; and if tbey know any thing on the second, that they can ibink might be of some concern to the Publick, and ibat could not be found in M. De Tbou, De Beze, D'Avila, De Castelnau, D'Aubigné, Monluc, Mezeray, or any other printed Histories or Memoirs, and they be so kind to communicate it to me, I fall publickly few my Gratitude to them. : N.B. As I was forced to shorten the third Book, p. not to swell this Volume, I was also obliged to 3. change the Articles of it from the LXIXth to *; tbe End, which are to be read in the follow F Peter Flower Esq;
