THE seventh volume of the SPECTATOR,
originally intended to be the last, was concluded
Dec. 6, 1712, and the first paper of the GUAR-
DIAN made its appearance March 12, 1713.
This work had been actually projected by STEELE
before the conclusion of the SPECTATOR. In a
letter to Pope, dated Nov. 12, 1712,
nounces his intention in these words, “ I desire
you would let me know whether you are at leisure
or not? I have a design which I shall open a
month or two hence, with the assistance of the
few like yourself. If your thoughts are unen-
gaged, I shall explain myself farther.” To this,
which indicates that Pope had previously assisted
STEELE, though of that assistance we have no
direct proof, he answers that - he shall be very
ready and glad to contribute to any design that
tends to the advantage of mankind, which, he

“ I am sure, all yours do.”*
