AT THE UNIVERSITY PRESS FOR J. PARKER.

THE following slight memorial of academical studies, once pursued with eagerness, and always to be remembered with delight, was composed principally about last Easter, during an intermission of professional employments. It was originally intended to be sent into the world without the Author's name : but he has not thought fit to contest a matter of so little importance with his publisher. To two gentlemen of the University, of whose names (unless by guess) he is ignorant, he is obliged for the kind communication of some judicious criticisms. He has since reperused, and in several places amended the tract; which he ventures to affirm, whatever errors may be detected in the logic, or mistakes in the facts, or vices in the style, will not be found to contain any opinion of which he can have reason to be ashamed.
