ExtraS from the Preface.
To the honor at' Mr. Berquin's taste,
it may be laid, that he has muted fnuple
elegance with interesting variety, but ri
gidly repai ated both fioni the flighted ap
proach of whatever is vulgar or puerile:
a merit much more easily praised than imi
rafed. The art of an, uling child en,whilft
at the fame Strut tl« Infant Genius is raif
en and the tUzlrs meitdnl, appears from
ilii works to be no contemptible cHbrt of
the mind. Wherevei, therefore, the uti
lity of i'uch an untfertilkiiig is acknowledg
ed, the reputation oT" Mr. Btiquin mult
ever be held in delifrvert elletm.
" Happily fucn u the atjte<able versatili

it would be (lithcu tlo pronounce i'i what
department he excels : whether in the
lively or the pathetic}' the li.npia lacgusge
of narrative, or the animated points of
conversation : whether in flnewd remarks
upon privaie lile, or in floiid description
of the beauties of natiue.
