* The progress of the above work has been impeded in a greater degree than the author expected, by the time he has found it necessary to bestow upon the MS. precedents of the late Mr. Powell, preparatory to their publication ; but as these have now nearly passed through his hands, he trufts no material delay will hereafter occur in presenting the Profefsion with ONE PART every six weeks, till the whole is completed in three VOLUMES.
