Lord Bishop of Llandaff.

My LORD,

IN the unauthorized liberty I am taking by submitting, in this public manner, my opinions to your Lordship, I am anxious not to be supposed to claim that the following work has passed the ordeal of your Lordship’s criticism ; being too sensible of the value of that opinion, as a passport to public attention, to be, in any way, a party to the delusion.

Your Lordship's character as a scholar stands too high to be injured by any thing I can do. Should the present attempt be judged weak and futile, thus far associating it with your Lordship's name will but recall to mind the solid ground on which you have established the character of the first theological critic of the present day.
