Gentleman's Diary,

OR THE MATHEMATICAL REPOSITORY; An A L MAN A CK For the Year of our LORD 1796:

BEING BISS EXTILE, OR LEAP YEAR. Containing many useful and entertaining Particulars,

peculiarly adapted to the ingenious Gentlemen engaged in the delightful Study and Practice of the MATHEMATICKS.

The Fifty-sixth ALMANACK published of this Kind; and the Forty-fourth of the New-STYLE in ENGLAND.

With wise Intent
The Hand of Nature on peculiar Minds
Imprints a different Bias, and to each
Decrees its Province in the common Toil.
To some the taught the Fabrick of the Sphere,
The changeful Moon, the Circuit of the Stars,
The golden Zones of Heaven: to some she gaves.
To weigh the Moment of eternal Things,
Of Time, and Space, and Fate's unbroken Chan
And Will's quick Impulse.

The ingenious Contributors are again thanked for their kind aflis. tance and encouragement; they are desired to confine their letters to the subjects which they meet with in this Diary orly, and not to mix with them things that they wish to have appear in another place, as the Author has no part or buliness in any similar publication.

An ingenious Enigma, 'by Mr. Pbilip Norris of Liverpool, was obliged to be oniitted last year account of its length; it would however have been inserted this year, had not some apprehensions been entertained, left it should appear at the same time in another place. And for like reasons fome others also are omitted. Several ingenious critical and philosophical questions have been obligad to be omitted this year for want of room : such of“them as seem to admit of farisfactory answers will not be forgotten in their turn, as opportunity offers ; bot gentlemen are hereby again reminded, that the answers to all these kind of queftions ore required to be sent along with them s

otherwise they need not expect to see them published. 11:INAR memór Anismas and Rebufes munt alto have their answere fent Lijs along with them. As to the M thema:ical Questions. The Au! 100
