Likewise, as many of the following songs while the Nurses are singing them, are attended with dancing, or exerciſing infants, I seriously intreat all who have the care of children, not to swing them by the arms with their heels backwards, leſt they dislocate their Backs, whch has ruined many a fine child.

I hope your experienced ſiſter Nurses will not be displeased, as my design is not to direct them; but as it very often happens, that young girls are entrusted with the care of children, I think these precautions and songs may be of use to them, as they have been to,

Yours, &c.
