The author is extremely sorry that he should have to apologise to his subscribers, for offering them only half the work he so lately promised them. But to ef. fect more at present, is impossible. The exhaustion occasioned by intense application during this scorching season, and two very violent attacks of sickness, have so much reduced his animal vigour, that he must have some relaxation.
At the same time, each part of this work forms a complete whole; and the SECOND PART shall appear as soon as the author's health will permit him to complete his manuscript.
Philadelphia, August 11, 1817.
