By John Searson, formerly of Philadelphia, merchant. [Three lines from Thomson].

Dedicated to Washington. The presence of the dedication suggests that the work was substantially ready for publication when Washington died in December, 1799. The elegiac verses on p. [85-88] were evidently added upon Washington's death, and the work published soon thereafter
