Excerpt from The Mirror, Vol. 2 of 2: A Periodical Paper, Published at Edinburgh in the Years 1779 and 1780 An ingenious author Of this agede has lately demonl'trated, that it is pollible to acquire a critical taﬂe in any of the fine arts, without the fmallefi portion Of natural genius; and it mull: be acknowledged, that his theory is proved by the example of molt modern critics. Among thefe arts, Iwould particularly recommend, as molt profitable to the lounger, the acquifition of a tal'te in muflc. After acquiring a good tafie, it will be an eafy matter to Obtain a proficiency in the prac'tice Of the fcience; and of this the advantage is very great. I have the honour to know feveral very accomplifhed gentlemen, who, with no other companion than their violin, are able to fiddle away a complete fummer's day with much comfort and delight.
