Excerpt from An Essay on the Following Prize-Question, Proposed by the Royal Irish Academy, "Whether and How Far the Cultivation of Science and That of Polite Literature Assist or Obstruct Each Other?"

TH E occasion of my writing the following Essay is sufiiciently indicated by the Titlepage. In no'w submitting it to the Public, I have only to declare that I have not the remotest idea of appealing from the decision which allotted to another composition the Prize proposed by the Academy. I have no doubt that this decision was founded on the most correct and impartial judgment can readily believe that the successful Essay possesses merit ever so much superior to mine and am too dead to the rivalry of Authorship to have any feeli?g, but that of satisfaction, at finding that Polite Literature has a more able Advocate than myself.
