r the more convenient referring in the following Index, the Page is continued in the Second Volume, the First ending with 588. So that all beyond that Number is to be looked for in the second Volume. je Figures between the Columns number the Lines. The First Column, or that which is towards the left hand, I distinguish by (a), the other by [b]. When I refer to the Text, either of the old or New Testament, I let down only the Chapter and Verse. When I refer to any Nate, I say on such or such a Place. For Example, under Alms, ar the Proportion to be given, there is on A&. 11.29. that is, the Note on A&. 11. 29. treats of he References are thus referr'd to. The first Number stands for the Page; then follows a, or b, which denotes the Column, then the Number or Numbers, till you come to a full Point, which stand for the Linese. If several Pages are referr'd to, the Numbers following a full Point express the Pages. Thus under Alms it is said, Almsgiving, a Dury very much insisted on in the holy. Scriptures. Here the Numbers afier a full Point arę 240, 279, 294, 301. which express the Pages ; the Letters being all [a], denote the first Column in those Pages

, the other Figures the Lines. ge 122, 123, 124, 125. are by Mistake cwice printed, which I mention, that if the Reader does not find what he looks for, he may have Recourse to the orher Place. Sometimes when che Text only is referr'd to, there are References under it belonging to the same subject, and almost always the Text is to be taken in with the References, nay perhaps sometimes require a littleThought,todiscern the reason why Tome Texts are referr'd to ; and I shall not be surprized, if the Reader sometimes thinks that I have mistaken fome Places, as I have thought others have done ; bur I have not willingly milapplied any Texts.
