TO THE

CLERGY OF THE CHURCH OF ENGLAND,

WHO PREACLI TUR

Doctrines contained in the Articles and Homilies

of that Church.

GENTLEMEN,

An Individual who ventures to hope that he once forined one of your body, and who trusts that he is still one with you in spirit, begs leave, in testimony of his admiration for your piety, and wisdom, to inscribe to you the following small volume.

Tf in its pages you should discover any thing inconsistent with the spirit of christian meekness, he hopes that, being once convinced of his error, he will be found at least as ready to apologize for, as you can be to censure it.

A difference of opinion on highly important, though not the most essential subjects, does cer. tainly exist between you and himself; but he hopes that difference will not dispose you to deny him the pleasure, and honour, of subscribing himself, with sentiments of high respect, and unfeigned esteem,

Gentlemen,
Your obedient servant,
And affectionate brother,

THE AUTHOR.
