THE EPISTLE DEDICATORY.

If it shall happen to have the good fortune to please a judgment so nice as your lordship's, I shall reckon it sufficient amends for all the difficulties and discouragements which have been so industriously thrown in my way, particularly by some people who have done their utmost endeavour to ruin me and the design.

That it may please God long to continue your lordship so eminent an example of all Christian virtues, is the hearty prayer of,

My lord,

Your lordship's most obliged,

Most obedient,

and most humble servant,
Jan. 26, 1715-16. JOHN LE NEVE.
