THE HONOURABLE AND RIGHT REVEREND

SHUTE,

LORD BISHOP OF DURHAM.

MY LORD,

I VENTURE, without previously soliciting permission, to inscribe this small work to your Lordship. If it fail of its main

purpose, the fault, I am confident, is in the advocate, not in the cause: but, be this as it may, if it in any degree satisfy your Lordship, that the great favours which you have conferred on me, have been bestowed on a sincere and earnest, however humble, labourer in the ser

(iv)

vice of our Apostolic Church, the pains employed upon it will not have been

thrown away.

Let me gratify myself my bearing this public testimony to that zeal and ardour in the cause of true religion, which even the lapse of more than twenty years beyond the ordinary age of man is unable to extinguish, and that watchful care for the welfare of your own Diocese, which it is my

honour and my happiness every day to witness.

I am,

My Lord, with the truest respect and gratitude, Your Lordship’s most dutiful

and most obliged Servant,
