YOUR Design of obliging the Public with a correct Edi tion of all Mr. ADDISON'S Latin Poems, and Transla ions of them, meets here with a gene al Approbation.
According to my Promise I have sent you the TWO ODES: You pro mis'd to conceal my Name, which I insist on. I will be answerable to the World for the Justness of the Tran lation, and hitting the AUTHOR'S Mind; omitting, I think, no Empha ical Beauty or Turn Mr. ADDISON has express'd in the Original. Next Week you shall have (what I can't[Page] help calling Mr. ADDISON'S Mas ter-Piece) his POEM on the Peace of Reswick; upon the Publication of which, the English Reader will see what Havock has been made of this Performance, by all the modern Poets who have wrote upon that Subject; and whatever Beauties have been ad mir'd in their Works, are owing to this excellent Original. The Battle of the Pygmies and Cranes, The Puppet-show, The Bowling-green, and The Barometer, you shall have with all convenient Speed.
