PRINTED BY W. BAXTER,
FOR J. PARKER; AND C. J. G. AND F. RIVINGTON,
"What I have here said, how it will be taken, I "know not prophets are seldom welcome, that prophesy 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 66 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.
