SOME circumstances, unnecessary to mention, have delayed the appearance of the New ANNUAL Register for 1803 somewhat longer than usual. It is now submitted to the Public; and the authors and editors trust that they will be found to have performed their task with their usual fidelity.

A complete and authentic narrative of the late transactions in India, could not be obtained in time for insertion; and indeed the contests there were not concluded at the termination of he year 1803. It was therefore thought better to defer this subject to our next volume; when, from the documents before us, we can promise

our readers not only that the events will be re

lated with truth and candour, but that some

new light will be reflected on them. Dec. 29, 1804.
