P R E F A CE,
HE present volume makes its appearance at least a month later than was intended. But as our readers must perceive that our information is derived from no common fources, it may naturally be conceived that some delay may occur in the collecting of that information; and that, whatever
may be our affiduity in endeavouring to gratify the anxious curiosity of the public at this momentous period, : fome:disappointment (for every delay is a disappointment), may ensue from circumstances which we cannot command.
It is, however, with great pleasure, we can assure the public, that the New Annual Register for 1796 is already in some forwardness; and that we have formed such arrangements, as, we doubt not, will not only insure us the best and most authentic information on political affairs, but will enable us to gratify our own wishes and those of our friends, by an early publication.
