THE GREAT ADDISON BESTOWS THE FOL4 LOWING EULOGIUM ON THE AUTHOR OF
THE FIRST PART OF THIS WORK.
“ CORNARO was of an infirm constitution till about forty, when, by obstinately persisting in the Rules recommended in this Book, he recovered a perfect state of health, insomuch, that at four-score he published this Treatise. He lived to give a fourth edition of it, and after having passed his hundredth year, died without pain or agony, like one who falls asleep.
This Book is highly extolled by many eminent authors, and is written with such a spirit of cheerfulness and good sense, as are the natural concomitants of temperance and virtue."
