On the DEATH of the Rev. Mr. George WHITEFIELD :

Preached at the Chapel in Tottenham Court-Road, and at the
Tabernacle, near Moorfields, on Sunday, Nov. 18, 1770.

NUMBERS xxiii. 10.

66 Let me die the death of the Righteous, and let my last end

be like his."

1. “ LET my last end be like his !” How many of you join in this wish? Perhaps there are few of you who do not, even in this numerous congregation. And, O that this wish may rest upon your minds !—that it may not die away till your souls also are lodged “where the wicked cease from troubling, and where the weary are at rest."

2. An elaborate exposition of the text will not be expected on this occasion. It would detain you too long from the sadly-pleasing thought of your beloved Brother, Friend, and Pastor; yea, and Father too: for how many are here whom he hath “begotten in the Lord ?" Will it not then be more suitable to your inclinations, as well as to this solemnity, directly to speak of this Man of God, whom you have so often heard speaking in this place? The end of whose conversation ye know, “ Jesus Christ, the same yes- . terday, to-day, and for ever.” VOL. IX.
