Critical Opinions upon the preceding Voluncs. « This work excites much curiosity because it professedly treats of living chara&ters, and we infer that its information is impartial and correct. It is but justice to own that we have been altogether amused by the publication.-British Critic.

“ A spirit of candour and moderation evidently pervades the present publication. Some of the characters arc drawn with great discrimination, and display an acuteness of powers, and a felicity of expression, not to be found in the Recting produ&tions of the day. In short, the work abounds in moral and critical observations that evince correctness of judgment, and delicacy of taste."

London Review. “ This work discovers respectable traits of discrimination, and has the merit ef being uncontaminated by the virulence of party {pirit.”' Critical Review.

do The memoirs contained in these volumes are full and accurate in point of infore mation; judicious in their literary and critical frictures; and exhibit well drawn and appropriate characters of their respective subjects. They are not written under the uniform influence of any particular theological or political bias.--- New Annual Register.

“ This work proceeds according to its first design, and it seems to improve as it advances with time. The Volumes contain a conliderable number of memoirs of persons, our contemporaries, who figure in the moral, the political, and the scientific walks of society. "The discussion of living characters is a difficult and delicate task, but in the execution of it, the authors of this work have acquitted themselves with as much success as can reasonably be expected.”

Mont bly Review.
