HE volumes, I am now presenting the World with, are, truly Speaking, no otber than loose Papers; and the Author, that great and

venerable Prelate, whose Name they bear, does not seem to have design'd them for the Press: And upon this Account it is I have debated for some Time with my self, whether a Publication of them would апу ways lessen the Esteem of that Good and Excellent Man; whose Labours, in the Learned Languages as well as our own, have justlygained high Applause, and done fo much good in the World already. Upon consulting then with several Eminent Divines, 'and other Pious and Learned Gentlemen, my very good Friends, they did, after' Ferusal, conceive of them as just and choice Fragments, containing a Summary of the Christian Dočtrine ; the several Topicks being digested in a most excellent Method, confirm'd from several Parallel Places of Scripture ; and very often illustrated, in the like concise manner, from the Testimonies of Fathers, Councils, &c. And upon these Confiderations, I perswade muy self, what I offer will be in some measure serviceable to all in general that apply themselves to the Study of the Holy Scriptures, especially the Clergy, who will bere meet with so sure a Guide, and have so true a Foundation'laid for the Superstructure they all think fit to raise upon it. And I have been still more inclined to think they may serve these good Enis, after those many Letters I have received from several Parts of this Kingdom, as well as from abroad, full of earneft sollicitations to oblige the World with the Remains of that Person, whole profound Learning, exemplary Piety, and fingular Humility has so much endear'd bis Memory to the whole Christian World; and more especially to i hose that have a just sense of Religion on their Minds,
