ADVERTISEMENT.

The Publishers of the following Memoir having seen, during its progress, that it would require to be extended beyond what was originally expected, they resolved to print it, not only with the works of Sir Joshua Reynolds, as before given to the public, but also separately. On this account, in order to make the Memoir more complete, it became necessary to introduce more of the matter noticed by Mr. Malone than was intended; but, in these instances, there are additional circumstances which do not appear in his narrative.
