THE Editor’s Address to the Public .

Nine years have expired since the publication of the last NORWICH DIRECTORY (which was out of print almost as soon as in); during which period, alterations have been constantly taking place in the residence of the inhabitants, independent of those which have been entirely removed by death or otherwise. It will be found of those which were inserted in the former, and are still to be found in this, not half of them remain in the same residence.—He was not aware of the difficulty of obtaining the address of so large a population, or he would have been deterred from the undertaking: he has used his utmost endeavors to render it as correct as possible, and hopes he has made no very flagrant errors or omissions.—The DIRECTORY contains several hundred names more than that before noticed—the historical part is entirely written and compiled for the present purpose—many charitable and public institutions are noticed which cannot be found elsewhere—and the lists are much augmented, and corrected to the present time.—The alphabetical order of the DIRECTORY, is corrected to the first vowel.

He cannot let this opportunity escape, without returning his thanks to several gentlemen who have rendered him information he could not otherwise have obtained.—He writes not for fame, but throws himself on an indulgent public; and should his feeble efforts prove in any degree useful, or meet the approbation of his fellow citizens, his end is gained.
