Right Reverend Father in GOD,.;

ear deceas'd Hufband's Sermons to the Press, I
could not long deliberate with myself to whom I should address them. The Favours you conferr'd upon the Author of them, when alive, and the gracious Continuance of your Kindness to myself since his Death, under the strait Circumstances wherein I was left, would not let me think of any one but Your Lordship. ;
