when convenience did not allow of our giving papers entire: and that perfect confidence may be placed in the AUTHORITY that characterizes our articles, The intelligence with which we have been favoured, the opinions which conviction has led us to adopt, have not seldom corresponded with subsequent events of magnitude and interest to Europe and the world : we venture to think, that others will be justified by their accomplishment, and that, together with the merit of fidelity, we shall be admitted to have possessed that of discretion and discrimination.

We close, by assuring our Friends that we rely on the continuance of the same patronage as we have hitherto enjoyed : and that our conduct will man fest the same steadiness and integrity, the same impartiality and rectitude, as we have hitherto endeavoured to preserve: we trust, also, to meet the exercise of that same candour on the part of our Friends and the Public, as that to which we take both a pleasure and a pride in acknowledging our obligations.

At the close of its Third Volume the LITERARY PANORAMA meets its friends and supporters with a cheerful countenance, and with many and sincere thanks for the favours it has received from them. And it is the more beholden to express its gratitude, because it has experienced an INCREASE OF SALE, principally by the very kind recommendations of those who have been best acquainted with its inerits, by their constant perusal of it.

Our Subscribers have been the means of selling more copies of the work by their favourable representatioirs of it to their friends, than all the advertisements of it in the public papers; though attended with an expense considerably exceeding a THOUSAND POUNTS. With the greatest deference we presume to consider this kindness as sanctioning the course we have pursued in our humble endeavours to communicate general information ; and we can form no better wishes for our work, than that our new Subscribers may also interest themselves in procuring additional patronage, and in taking such opportunities of commending it as justice and propriety may warrant.

We have to express our sincerest gratitude to those quarters from wherce we have received communications of the greatest value and importance : we arrogate no undue distinction, when we say, that our Work is MARKED by this preference; and that a great proportion of its contents will be looked back to, for years to come, with unabated interest, this being the ONLY repository in which they will be known to be extant. We can honestly affirm, that a consciousness of this importance has induced us to pay the utmost attention to the correctness of our insertions and abstracts,
