JEWKS, Esquires.

Most worthy Gentlemen,

W Ere you not Executors to that Person, who {while he liv'd) was the Glory of the Nation; yet 1 am Confident any thing of his would find Acceptance with you, and truly the Sense and Notion here is wholy his, and most of the words. I had the opportunity to hear his Discourse twenty Years together, and least all those Excellent things that usually fell from him might be lost, some of them from time to time I faithfully committed to Writing, where here digested into this Method,! humbly present to your Hands; you will quickly perceive them to be Ms by the familiar Illustrations wherewith they are set off, and in which way you know he was so happy, that (with a marvelous delight to those that heard him) he would presently convey the highest Points of Religion, and the most important Affairs of State to an ordinary apprehenfion. .

In reading be pleased to distinguijh Times, and in yout Fancy carry along with you, the When and the Why, many of these things were spoken; this will give them the more Life, and the smarter Relijh: Tis possible the Entertainment you find in them, may render you the more inclinable to pardon the Presumption of

Your most Obliged and

most Humble Servant,

RI: MIL WARD.
