Reader's note

This poor gentleman, who for some months past had been in a declining way, hath at length paid his final tribute to nature. I am now at liberty to confess, that much which I have heard objected to my late friend's writings was well-founded. Crude they are, I grant you--a sort of unlicked, incondite things--villainously pranked in an affected array of antique modes and phrases...find out why these essays are still highly regarded today! This marvellously decorative version is still full of the same charm and wit that will keep the pages turning!
