This makes the Study of Hifiory more neceflary for the Young People of the preftnt Age, than ever it was in any-former, especially as to thofe Principles that ought to beincak cated with regard to the Publick ; becaufe we have now. exifting fo very few Examples of Steady Virtue and Publick Spirit.--In private Life, and among the Lower Giafif. of People, we may find fome Perfons of Honour, HoaefryV Fidelity and Generofity, whom we may with Confidence recommend as Examples to our Children ; but in Publitk Life, if we recommend any Man as an Example of trut Honour or feady Patriotifm, it is ten to one, but upon the �� next Turn of Affairs, his Example deftroys.the Precept we; defigned to inculcate, and ferves only to make us exclaim, as Brutus did of old, that Virtue is but an empty Dream^ > -a Phantome, that exifts only in the Imagination .'. .

It is reported of the Grecians, that they ufed to makd their Slaws drunk, and then expofe them to their Children, in order to give the latter an Abhorrence of th&tabomina~ ble Vice.-Happy would it have been for many of out nobU and great Families, had this been the PraQice of their An~ ceforsl-And as to theRomans, Horace has left us uponRe*. coTd, the Method which his Father took to form his Min4 for Virtue.
