THE REALITIES OF LIFE.
WITH A PREFACE ADDRESSED TO THE CLERGY.
JOHN MILLER, M.A.
LATE FELLOW OF WORCESTER COLLEGE, OXFORD.
PRINTED BY W. BAXTER,
“ What I have here said, how it will be taken, I “ know not: prophets are seldom welcome, that pro“phesy unwelcome things. But truly, at the sad ap“prehension of the dangerous condition we now stand “ in, and in zeal for the safety and honour of my dear “ Mother THE CHURCH OF ENGLAND, which hath “ nourished me up to become a Christian and a Pro“ testant, my heart waxed hot within me, and the fire so “ kindled, that I could not forbear but once more to
give vent thereunto, by laying open the second time “my inmost thoughts to the view of the world. Which “ I have done with the greatest plainness and freedom, “ that (avoiding bitterness) was possible for me to do.”
Preface to Bishop Sanderson's Sermons.
