THE unprecedented sale of this work, the rapidity with which it has been carried on, and the number of Compositors and Press-men engaged upon it, day and night, are circumstances which the candid and liberal Reader will be pleased to take into consideration. The same indulgence for literal errors usually extended to the Daily Press, is respectfully claimed for this work.

The great object of the Publishers has been to give the WHOLE of the PROCEEDINGS as promptly as possible : how far they have succeeded in their object the Reader is able to judge.

Portraits, especially of the haphazard sort, no doubt, tend very much to the elucidation of a subject; and “ Notes and Comments,' after the text has been reduced and mutilated, go a great way towards harmonizing the detached parts; yet, the sale of this work, without either Portraits, Notes, or Comments, has been more than equal to that of all the Portrait and Note-and-Comment editions put together.

For the valuable suggestions of numerous correspondents, the publishers are duly thankful; and regret that they have not had leisure to make earlier and more particular acknowledgments. They have had, latterly, three or four complaints of the dearness of this work compared with the other pamphlets of the day, and have had the strong fact pointed out to them, that certain other publishers give 24 sheets for sixpence. It is no wonder that out of the number of their readers, there should be a few totally ignorant of printing. Compositors are not paid by the page but by the word. It would be invidious to name any of the sixpenny pamphlets, but the publishers respectfully call upon their complaining correspondents to count the number of words in one of their lines, and the number of lines on a pago; multiply the lines by the words: then submit any other sixponny pamphlet to the same test. The result will inevitably be, that on an average, they give twice as much as any other pamphlet now publishing. This is their best, and they trust it will be considered a complete, answer.

The Publishers return their best thanks for the distinguished favour with which their exertions have been crowned, and beg most respectfully to inform their Readers, that the work will be resumed on the reassembling of Parliament, containing the fullest REPORT OF HER MAJESTY's DEFENCE that can be taken. babe,

$290, Strand, Sept. 13, 1820.
