SHEPHERD. What say you to your auld frien' Pringle, the editor o' the Friendship's Offering, sir?
NORTH. I say, James, that Mr. Pringle is himself a pleasing poet and amiable man, that he possesses peculiar qualifications for being the Editor of an Annual, and I have no doubt that his will be one of the best of the whole set. Then there's the Bijou, which last year was exquisite — and the Keepsake — Heaven preserve us — with all the rank, fashion, and genius of the age.
