Notes: "The purchasers of D. Hume's History of England having been long desirous of a continuation; the proprietor of Dr. Smollett's History ... has been induced to reprint that work from the Revolution, where Hume's History ends, to the death of George II. in the year 1760. To make this work more acceptable, the sections, and other divisions, are given in a manner correspondent with those observed by Hume ... The war before the last had its source in America, and thereby drew forth our settlements there into consequence. This, with the loss of most of those settlements since to Great Britain, had brought with it so many changes, that ... even facts themselves are become changed, and the very state of the two countries has undergone a metamorphosis which was impossible to be foreseen by the shrewdest politician. To assist the views of so eminent a writer as Smollett ... a few, very few, alterations have been made on those heads."--Advertisement, v. 1, p. [3-4], 1st count.
