PREFACE.

MOST of the following Essays were published in the Museum, and Columbian Magazine, in this City, 'soon after the end of the revolutionary war in the United States. A few of them made their first appearance in pamphlets. They are now published in a single volume, at the request of several friends, and with a view of promoting the ends at first contemplated by them. Two of the Essays, viz: that upon the use of Tobacco, and the account of remarkable circumstances in the constitution and life of Ann Woods, are now submitted for the first time to the eye of the public. The author has omitted in this collection two pamphlets which he published in the year 1772, upon

the slavery of the Negroes, because he conceived the object of them had been in part accomplished, and because the Citizens of the United States have since that time been

furnished from Great-Britain and other

countries, with numerous tracts upon that subject, more calculated to complete the effect intended by the author, than his early publications.

BENJAMIN RUSH.

Philadelphia, Jan. 9, 1798.
