British Magazine (Newspaper) - April 1, 1946, London, Middlesex THE Britijh Magazine. Far APR I L, 1746. The OccaftonaiSpe&ator, N*. z. IHad Occafion to place a very ridiculous Frotttifpiece to my Entrance, upon thefe Speculations, in a difagreeable. Picture of common .Weaknefs,; Ill-Nature. I might, as a. Mpralift, have ..' fubjoin'd, .by way of Le&ure, fome falutary.. Comment to correct fuch a Difpofitioh, and added fuch embellilhing Explanations to the Piece, as is ufual under ill Drawings, that would have very much aififted and enforced the Satire. But at my firft Appearance I was unwilling to aflum'e the venerable Afpeft arid Gravity of a veteran Spectator. My $kim was to difcountenance Folly by a flight and gentle Foil, ratfier than to provoke the Fury of my Antagonist by too fmartly puihing him: Or, to make my Effay, with the cautionary Policy of an unpra&is'd "Wreftler, who is willing to try his Strength in an eafy fportive Fall or two, before he ventures boldly to enter the Lifts, and propofe his general Challenge. From what appears, indeed, I am, inclined to fear I have made fome Dif? turbance among thewhble Body of choleric Gentlemen,, each one thinking jhimfelf p.erfooally intended in the ridiculous Character I have represented, and am in a very fair way to draw the whole IJI-nature of the Town againft me, by what I can conceive from two Letters of Complaint upon this Subject which I have lately receivM. I think it neceffary to infert them, to quiet the uneafy Uncer-taiatiej that many other Perfons may be in on the fatoe'Account,- G : an|,
