PREFACE.

THE

HE Second Volume of the ANNUAL BIOGRAPHY and OBITUARY is now presented to the Public. It contains an account of many of the celebrated men who died in the course of the year 1817; and also includes three memoirs of distinguished characters, who were cut off but a few months antecedent to that period.

[ocr errors]

On this, as on a former occasion, recourse has been had to assistance of various kinds; and it will probably be allowed, by such as are disposed to liberality and candour, that much curious and interesting information has been procured. It may be easily discovered on inspection, indeed, that many important papers have been obtained ; and it ought to be known, also, that while some families have vouchsafed to contribute original documents, others have kindly corrected such as were sent for their perusal.
