So many excellent pieces have been written on this subject, that it would be the highest degree of vanity to attempt it. My design is to draw up the reasons urged by other writers into a small compass, and sell the piece at so low a price, that, not only the poorer sort may be able to purchase it, but others who have a regard to our interest, may be disposed to distribute them. A favour which I can ask with a good grace since no one can suspect, that the expectation of profit should induce me to publish a three-penny pamphlet. To set the argument in a strong clear light is my aim, but God is my witness, to whom I must give an account as well for what I write, as what I say- that not one single circumstance is designedly misrepresented or aggravated- if therefore, I have been in any respect mistaken, I am open to conviction, yet if the greater part, or even but a few of the arguments here offered are unexceptionable, every person must then judge for himself with regard to their strength and importance.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
