Ye pompous Sons of Reason idolized
The Son of man is come, to seek and to save that which was lost.
THE PARISH OF MADELEY,
IN THE COUNTY OF SALOP.
You are no less entitled to my private labours, than the inferior class of my parishioners. As you do not choose to partake with them of my evening instructions, I take the liberty, to present you with some of my morning meditations. May these wellmeant endeavours of my pen be more acceptable to you, than those of my tongue ! And may you carefully read in your closets, what you have perhaps inattentively heard
in the Church! I appeal to the Searcher of hearts, that I had rather impart truth than receive tythes. You kindly bestow the latter upon me; grant me,
the satisfaction of seeing you favourably receive the former,
Your affectionate Minister,
And obedient Servant,
