IN

Compliance with custom, we have in the Frontispieces to several of our former Volumes introduced Genius, and the Sister Arts of Poetry, Painting, and Music, as Helpmaids to our Editors; and in the present instance, had sent cards of invitation to Apollo and the Nine, requesting their company. They, however, sent different excuses for declining the visit. The Tragic Muse could not think of a Tête-a-Tile, till the had made her public appearance after her late indifpofition. Thalia was so engaged from Houje to House, that she could not poflibly come ; and the rest of the Ladies were on a party at Oxford with the Laureat, where they intended staying till the Birth-day, in hopes of clear weather, having been much bewildered on their late joui ney to town, on occasion of the New Year. Thus disappointed, we have prefixed an Elegant Place of one of the Seasons, copied from a Capital French Engraving, with a beautiful Vignette ; intending to give the others in succellion, not doubting but our Readers will be as well plealed as if we had pursued the beaten track.

ANSWERS TO CORRESPONDENTS. E. T. P.'s Verses on May we will reserve for that month, unless lie defires their admis. fion sooner.

Quandoque dormitaHomerus, and Common Sense, in our next.

Groby, Aurelius, Pbilobiblicus, and several other Letters are received, and are under consideration.

We have no room for Rebuses and Enigmas.

HE EUROPEAN MAGAZINE having now been

before the Public Four Years, the PROPRIETORS of it trust they may refer to the Execution of the Work as their Claim for a further continuance of Favour and Patronage. They are sensible they have owed the Indulgence and Encouragement which they have experienced, to their Attention and Industry; and those Qualities they can promise, will continue to be unremittingly exercised upon every Occasion to furnish out a Publication worthy of the Notice and Attention of every Rank in Society. By these Means they flatter themselves they will be intitled to folicit future Protection, and by these Means they hope to obtain it.

They take this opportunity of returning Thanks to those who have favoured them with Affistance, and presume to solicit the learned and ingenious in all Arts and Sciences to continue to honour them with their Correspondence. The Notice they have received froin some of the first Characters in Literature gives them Reason to expect that the European Magazine will become a general Vehicle by which the Literati of the whole Kingdom may converse with each other, and communicate their Knowledge to the World. They therefore flatter themselves, that such as have any useful Knowledge to communicate, or any Hint that may improve the Mind, polish the Manners, refine the Taste, or mend the Heart, will be as glad of such an Opportunity of communicating it, as the EDITORS of the EUROPEAN MAGAZINE will be always ready to convey it to the Public.
