S the Authors of the Critical Review feldom solicit an audience from the Public
on their own account, they hope to meet with indulgence on the present occafion.
It has been remarked, “That the highest character a judge can acquire, is that of pleasing both parties, or neither. The truth of this observation the Critical Reviewers lately experienced; having perceived, from several anonymous publications, that their impartiality has excited a kind of jealousy between the Dunces of England and Scotland, which terminates in each party abusing the Critical Review,
The authors of this work took an early opportunity of declaring, " That they never pretended to infallibility in criticism, or presumed
to decide with dogmatical authority : they have delivered their sentiments as opinions only, supported with reasons, on which every reader may exercise șiş own understanding.’---They Aatter themselves with having generally acted in 'strict conformity to those professions : though they consider it as a misfortune inseparable from the nature of their undertaking, if their observations have disgusted a few persons of real genius; but must, at the same time, declare, that they have been always open to conviction, reproof, and information.
They are inclined to think, that if they had not endeavoured to discourage that destructive antipathy which political prejudices had raised in England against the inhabitants of NorthBritain, it would have been impollible for their most inveterate enemy to charge the Critical Reviewers with forming a Scotch conspiracy to depreciate English literature ; especially as many instances might be produced in which they have treated the writers of that country very freely, and even declared *, 'It is å melancholy truth, that every idle Scotchman who will not, or cannot earn his bread by the em ployment in which he was brought up, commencès author, and undertakes to translate books into a language of which he is entirely igno, rant.
