TO

JOHN YOUNG, ESQUIRE,

PROFESSOR OF GREEK IN THE UNIVERSITY OF GLASGOW,

MY DEAR SIR,

IN presenting you with a Memoir on the Life of our late excellent Friend, Mr Millar, I submit it to the person who, from long and familiar intercourse with him, will most readily perceive any misconceptions of his real character, or inaccuracies in the representation of his opinions.

I am fully aware of the difficulty of delineating a character such as Mr Millar's, and I am not insensible of the danger of failing in a species of composition in which some late writings have accustomed the Public to the union, in an uncommon degree, of Philosophy and Taste; but I could

I am, with the greatest regard,

MY DEAR SIR,

Your most obcdient Servant,

JOHN CRAIG,

GLASGOW, February, 1806.
